Quality materials unite with striking style in these sleek candlestick holder sets. Handcarved in Mozambique from native blackwood and fair-trade imported through Aid to Artisans.
Aid to Artisans is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating economic opportunities for craftspeople in developing nations. Most of ATA's artisan partners in Mozambique are wood carvers with a long history of craft production. Although men traditionally used precious woods for craft production, ATA is conscious of the fact that the trees are becoming increasingly scarce, and is committed to conservation and judicious use of natural resources.

These are beautiful! Sleek and classy. Be aware that 'blackwood' is not all black. There could be brown markings in the wood and this is normal. Does not detract from the beauty.
