Details

Costa Rican artisan Blanca Padilla designs and handcrafts this nativity scene out of fiber extracted from cabuya, a succulent that looks similar to agave. The cabuya fiber is a beautiful creamy antique white, and the artisan works with its natural texture to from the figures of Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus and the modest red-roofed shelter.

The art and skill of creating handicrafts from cabuya has been handed down through Blanca Padilla's family for generations. The artisan sources her material herself, growing and harvesting the cabuya, extracting the fiber, and preparing it for use in the handicrafts. Blanca Padilla hopes to help revitalize the cabuya craft industry with the success of her designs.

"Even more beautiful than it appears on this page!"

I have a small collection of Fair Trade Nativities from around the world and saw this one and wanted to add it to my collection. It is even more BEAUTIFUL in than the photograph can possibly portray. I was simply astounded by the simple elegance of this nativity. The craftsmanship is superb. I wish that I could give this six stars as it surpass the expectations I had when I ordered it. Thank You for your fine work in making this.

My favourite thing to do is buy Christmas ornaments and its getting to the stage where Im going to need a bigger tree! I couldnt pass up the opportunity to buy these though - theyre beautiful pieces of art. I am already displaying them as I didnt want to wait until Christmas and I dont think you can ever have too many angels around you!

This was stored on arrival. It arrived timely but after Christmas so went directly into storage without being opened. I am counting on it being bright and beautiful.
