Recycled Table Runner

I found this shop near the bay that has some beautiful handmade items and bought myself a table runner for the living room. The table runner is made of strips of Capalana’s(material that women wear as skirts, to carry babies or fresh food and multiple other uses) and old car tires.

I love that they recycle so much here, it looks different than the recycling we do back home but the items are still getting recycled and that’s something to be excited for.

This table runner was handmade by orphans in Mozambique to help them learn a skill they can use to provide for themselves and take them further in life.
