Add a dose of nautical whimsy to your décor with this charming Wood and Rope Turtle. The turtle's body is carved from reclaimed wood and painted with an ocean-hued paint scheme, while his "shell" is made from loops of natural abacá rope. Also known as Manila hemp, the abacá tree is a species of banana native to the Philippines. The fiber harvested from the abacá is not only used for making twine and rope, but is also pulped to create specialized paper products such as tea bags, filters and bank notes. This delightful tabletop turtle will be a charming addition to your décor, or put him to work as a pin cushion or as a place to tack a note.
