Holding Hands African “Trash Art” Menorah
Handcrafted from recycled metal by talented Kenyan artisans according to designs developed in partnership with Swahili Designs, the design of this menorah – holding hands – reflects the joyousness of Chanukah, the festival of lights, and the fight for personal and religious freedom that the holiday celebrates.
Creative African artisans transform discarded bottles, cans, plastic, metal, flip flops, fabric, rubber and wire into cool works of modern trash art. This win-win creative mindset extends the global recycling movement and helps artisans earn income to lift themselves, their families and their communities out of poverty, all while preserving their natural environments.
