The art of recycling – ingenious giraffe crafted in Harare, Zimbabwe

A few days ago I posted a short story Chipepo’s Box.  It was based on the relationship between crafts and tourism in Zimbabwe.

This morning, with a few minutes to scan through other WordPress blogs, I found this on the Zim Creative blog.

Chipepo sold his box at the foot of a baobab tree in the Zambezi Valley – Manners Mukuwiri works in Chitungwiza just outside Harare .   His giraffe aren’t quite the same as Sibongile’s soapstone giraffe but their need for customers is.
