Saa Paper Mobile - Spider and Bats
Are you bats about Halloween? We know that we are - and we just love hanging our handmade Halloween mobile in the window every year. The black mobile consists of a cascade of sustainable paper bats, all twirling around a central spider. The small bell at the end of each string of bats makes a gentle tinkling sound when it blows in the autumn breeze. Perfect as an environmentally friendly decoration for All Hallow's Eve - or anytime that you have bats in your belfry!
This mobile is handmade by fair trade artisans in Thailand from Saa paper, which comes from the bark of the Mulberry tree and is a sustainable paper source. The small branches of the mulberry tree are harvested at the end of the rainy season and the bark is steamed off. The branches then regrow the next year. This coppicing technique leads to a great alternative to plastic Halloween tat! It is brought to us by Siesta who, like us, are members of BAFTS Fair Trade Network UK.
