Wispy and delicate, the Karoo angel ornaments will make a lovely addition to your tree this holiday season. The Aarde range pays tribute to nature and mother earth - aarde is the Afrikaans word for earth.
Choose Gugu, a fantastic angel with deep, golden brown ostrich feathers—bronze-like in their color—and amber wire, a nod to the earth's precious minerals. The matching Preciosa beads underline her elegance. No wonder Gugu means 'precious.' Or pick out Rose, a striking angel with a ruby ostrich feather dress, ruby wire wings, and matching Preciosa beads. Rose means 'flower.'
The Baviaans area in the Karoo encompasses first and foremost the World Heritage Site Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve - an area of outstanding natural beauty, owing to its spectacular land forms, a diverse array of plants, and a wide variety of animals. Within the Baviaans area, you find the villages of Vondeling and Rietbron, where the Karoo Angels are made. The Karoo Angels master crafters use locally, ethically sourced ostrich feathers and merino wool combined with wires, glass beads, and other ornaments. Each angel comes in a reusable plastic pouch with a nametag and a card telling the Karoo Angels' story.
Every type of angel has its own unique design. Please notice that the beads and ornaments might differ slightly from the angels presented in the catalog, depending on availability. However, all angels will appear within their specific color theme.
