These delightful woven animals (plus some Christmas Ornaments) come from Chimore, Bolivia, an area the size of Connecticut and a prime coca growing region. Jipijapa (pronounced "hippy hoppa") is a renewable, wild palm typically found in the humid, tropical zones in Latin America. Its long-stalked, fanlike leaves are perfect for making handicrafts. Jipijapa plants were also used to make the famous "Panama hats" worn on the set of Casablanca.

Crafting Jipijapa ornaments provides an economic alternative to coca production. Artetropic, an artisan group supporting this project, provides work for hundreds of Bolivian women who earn, on average, less than half that of the men

Each animal is available in 3 sizes. Note that the turtles are a box - perfect for storing rings or other small items.

Colors are assorted except for the bees, caterpillars and grasshoppers. The ladybugs all have red wings, but bodies may be different colors.
