MADE51 is a project of the UNHCR (UN High Commissioner for Refugees), a global organization dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights and building a better future for refugees, forcibly displaced communities, and stateless people. By pairing refugee artisans with experienced social enterprises in their host country, MADE51 stimulates local economies while fostering a mutually beneficial relationship between refugee artisans and their hosts.
MADE51 works with five refugee artisan groups in Africa. This exquisite Shooting Star ornament is handcrafted by Malian refugees living in Burkina Faso, and is a shining example of traditional metalworking skills and designs that are passed from one Tuareg artisan to the next.
Each ornament is individually packaged and ready for gift-giving in a MADE51 box, complete with an artisan story card.
