Hand Carved Lion Head


SKU: PW-006

Hand Carved Lion Head – Look at this regal hand carved Lion Head, made from parasite wood.

Parasite wood is a parasitic plant that grows on a host tree. It feeds off the tree’s sap and is so strong that even when it’s host is dead this plant doesn’t decay. The unique structures sometimes called “wood roses” are the result of a parasitic mistletoe plant that grows on trees in Bali, commonly the chinaberry tree. Plants are collected by artisans who create wonderful carvings, also a great companion piece to our Hand Carved Lizard

What is Fairtrade

The international Fairtrade system represents the world’s largest, and also most recognised fair-trade system. It is a global movement with a strong and active presence in the UK. Fairtrade is a movement for change that works directly with businesses, consumers and campaigners.

Fairtrade is about better prices, but also decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world.

By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade looks at the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.

With Fairtrade you have the power to change the world every day. With simple shopping choices you can get farmers a better deal. And that means they can make their own decisions, control their future and lead the dignified life everyone deserves. There are over 1.66 million farmers and workers in 1,411 producer organisations across the Fairtrade system. Buying Fairtrade is easy. There are over 6,000 Fairtrade products such as coffee, tea, flowers and furniture.
