Wire Elephant Bookmark

Never forget your page again. The Wire Elephant Bookmark is there to remember your spot when you doze off in the middle of a story. The elephant-shaped copper wire bookmark is shaped from recycled copper wire by the skillful hands of Kenyan artisans in Kisumu and the paper backing is made from water hyacinth. The invasive plant species has plagued Lake Victoria and severely affected the livelihoods of fisherman. Innovative use of this nuisance plant for crafts, including papermaking, is contributing to the rehabilitation of Africa’s largest lake.
