This cute critter is the product of the imagination and ingenuity of a Vietnamese engineer-turned-artisan. Working from his home-based workshop, he transforms salvaged metal scraps into into wonderful home decor and smart office/desk accessories. Over the years, demand for his creations have continued to grow. The success that began in his small workshop has now expanded beyond the borders of Vietnam to support artisans in India as well. It is a wonderful success story and a truly global fair trade product. Besides making a great gift for dads, curio collectors, and animal lovers, each whimsical style proves that to recycle is a beautiful thing. Recycling is good!!
