These bold and beautiful papier-mâché bowls are doing their part by raising money for the drought and famine crisis afflicting the Horn of Africa. Created in partnership with Bundu Designs [1]and global aid agency Mercy Corps [2], the Congo-inspired bowls come in a range of vibrant African prints that will surely brighten up any interior space. Each bowl is constructed by hand using recycled magazines, and employ the crafting skills of a project group in South Africa that supports HIV positive women and children. For every bowl sold, $6 will be donated to the Horn of Africa disaster relief fund.
