These beautiful, blue elephants are a perfect accent for your home or office and make a unique gift for a friend or newborn baby.

Mama ($55) is approximately 10 inches from hoof to tip of trunk. Baby ($45) is approximately 6 inches. Please contact us if you would like to purchase the set for $90.

Each elephant is crafted by a team of three Khutsala Artisans. It takes about 1.5 hours for the first artist to string the beads for one elephant. One experienced artist spends about three hours making one elephant frame. Finally, another experienced artist spends a full day wrapping the frame with beads until an elephant is complete.

The Khutsala Artisans are men and women employed by Heart for Africa in a country where the unemployment rate is 70%.  Each employee receives training in multiple areas, including but not limited to bead craft, jewelry making, ceramics, computers, inventory management, human resources and financial planning.  All profits generated through sales of Khutsala Artisans merchandise go directly to support the children at Project Canaan, a ministry of Heart for Africa and a place of HOPE for the orphaned and vulnerable children in eSwatini, Africa (formerly Swaziland).
