Replica aeroplane made from recycled drinks cans.

1 in stock

Sold By: Con Amore


Recycled Can Aeroplane. Each plane is unique as it is hand made from recycled tin cans using a modelling technique called “Kapoaka”. Using recycled old drink or beer cans each one will be mainly silver in colour but may have different markings to the one pictured.

Each piece of aluminium is hand folded and cut. It is then soldered together to create an amazingly detailed plane.

Approximately 20cm x 25cm

These ornaments are made by a Madagascan cooperative. Started in 1994, they now have 18 workshops which provide Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans. Producing sustainable gifts using crafts such as weaving, woodwork, bone carving and modelling recycled tin cans.

With the profits generated by these workshops, the Kapoaka artisans have been able to improve their houses, they have bought good quality fields and have established pig breeding farms to boost and maintain the local economy. Things which they would never have been able to do otherwise.

Please note although these replica aeroplanes are great for older children they are for decoration only and are not a toy. Beware of sharp edges and small parts. They are not suitable for young children.
