Working with sustainably harvested Ipil wood, this charming birdhouse was lovingly crafted by the talented people of SAFFY Handicrafts in the Philippines. Besides just being adorable, these dwellings have sliding doors that allow you easy access to the interior to clean them between occupancies. Each house has a rope hanger so that you can suspend it wherever you'd like, but they also have flat bottoms so you can set them almost anywhere.
Dimensions: 24" x 6" x 6.5"
SAFFY Handicrafts is an arm of SAFRUI (Social Action Foundation for Rural and Urban Development), which began helping marginalized people in the Philippines way back in 1966. SAFFY itself began as a workshop to help youth and children in Manila find alternative livelihoods through sewing. Today, SAFFY supports 34 different artisan groups producing a wide range of handicrafts. In addition to providing business assistance such as micro-financing, help with product development, technical training and access to markets, artisans working with SAFFY also benefit from nutrition and health programs, projects to provide sustainable agriculture and community organizing.
