Indulge your free spirit with this model campervan made from recycled tin cans!
This cute and collectable campervan is a great gift for a keen traveller and is part of a range of model vehicles hand made from recycled tin cans. This craftwork is termed 'Kapoaka' - the art of skilfully turning unwanted aluminium cans into models - and it involves folding, cutting and soldering together small sections of tin to create intricately designed models with moving wheels and opening doors, etc.
The creators of these vehicles work for Bezalila, a co-operative in Madagascar with 18 workshops providing fair trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans in crafts such as weaving, woodwork, bone carving and “Kapoaka”. With the profits generated by the workshops the Kapoaka artisans have built their houses, bought rice fields and established a pig-breeding farm.Approximate size: 14 x 6.5 x 6 cm
