Pine Needle Ornaments
A Fair Trade product from Fuente de Pino in Nicaragua
Searching for a truly unique gift? Environmentally Friendly too? Here it is! Our collection of Pine Needle ornaments from Fuente de Pino of Nicaragua! We offer an assortment of fruits: apples, bananas and mangos, "ripe for the picking!"
Each hand-crafted ornament captures the silhouette of these familiar fruits. These items can decorate your holiday tree. But do not be limited to the holidays! These apples are especially appealing as gifts for that special teacher on your list!
These eco-friendly products are created from recently-fallen, long-leaf pine needles indigenous to the mountainous region around El Sauce, Nicaragua. Being diligent to perfect their basket-coiling technique, the women of Fuente de Pino are masterfully sharing their artistic heritage with you!
Each ornament is formed with tightly-coiled “ropes” of long pine needles. An appropriate splash of color is added at the center with loops of “green leaves” bringing the finishing touch!
