Fair Trade Thumb Piano – Carved Coconut
When the flesh from the coconut is scraped from the shell the ingenious folks in Indonesia don’t just throw the shells away,
they clean them up and turn them into wonderful gift items. Talk about using sustainable items to make perfect gifts.
This fair trade thumb piano is made from a hollowed out coconut shell which is then polished, the top board has been hand carved which creates funky art work.
With the top board added to the hollow coconut this creates a resonating chamber that produces a louder, more harmonically complex sound, just perfect when playing your thumb piano.
Wonderful fair trade gift for people who like to play hand instruments.
