Fair Trade Windchime – Bamboo and Coconut – Nodding Bird
This handmade windchime has been decorated with a hand carved wooden nodding dragon which also uses the shell of the coconut. When the milk and flesh of the coconut is taken the shell is not just thrown away but can be used in the the production of gift items, in this case it is used to produce the windchime.
When the wind blows, not only do the bamboo chimes make a wonderful sound but, the ferocious dragon also nods its head. Awesome!
Windchimes make perfect additions to any garden as they lend a melodic sound that is peaceful and relaxing, you can also place these windchimes near an open window within your home to achieve a gentle sound as the wind lightly passes through the window.
As the wind blows, the chimes knock together creating a gentle, magical tone.
Bamboo windchimes are produced using the fast growing bamboo plant, because bamboo grows so quickly it is an easily sustainable material. Bamboo is useful for many things and can provide a stable income for the producers of these windchimes without having a negative effect of the environment. Once dried out and shaped bamboo makes a lovely noise when hit with the central mallet.
