Baobab Tealight Holder


This Tealight holder, from the iconic African baobab tree fruit shells is designed by Seedling, carved and painted by local skilled artisans. Wooden base is handcrafted with recycled hardwood. Tea-light is removable from base in order to easily insert light. 

Seedling looks at nature as a source of inspiration for their designs and as a source of raw materials ready to be upcycled and reshaped to fit unexpected new purposes handmade by skilled team. The Baobab pods are harvested, cleaned and cut to shape by local community workers.
The cleaned raw shells are then further refined and assembled in their workshop. The fruit pulp, fiber and seeds are also upcycled and processed following their zero waste policy.

Size varies as pods are made of Baobab seeds, they can range from 10-15cm. Please note, due to the nature of the material each tealight holder is unique and can vary in dimensions and shape.
