Turtle-themed gifts: For good luck.
The articles you see on this page are all make by artisans all over the world and are made from sustainable or recycled materials.
The sculpture you see here, for example, is a carved coconut and its base is made from sustainable albesia wood. It is hand carved in Bali by an artist named Eka.
Eka was widowed in 2008 and was left as the sole provider for her two young children. Her husband had also been a coconut carver and Eka had been taught this traditional craft at an early age by her father. No two coconut carvings are alike.
In addition to décor items such as this, which are perfect for bringing a touch of the tropical to your home or office, you can also find turtle jewellery, rugs, textiles, ceramics and more – there are some very cute turtle teapots. These items make a really unusual gift and there’s something to suit all ages and every occasion.
Below are a few examples of the turtle-themed gifts you can buy online.
