Time to fess up. We actually have no idea what bird this is the whistle of. What we are hoping is that some intrepid ornithologist will, out of curiosity perhaps, order this piece and be kind enough to drop us a line.
These Bird Whistles are easy to use. You simply blow in the end while sliding the inside to produce wonderful rising and falling pitches. With practice, the birds you mimic will be flocking (or fleeing).
Handmade and fair trade, these make fine, fun ornaments in addition to attracting flocks of some sort of bird to your backyard sanctuary.
Made of one of our favourites- Beautiful Bamboo Bird Whistles are are sustainable, biodegradable, handcrafted and Fair Trade.
We also recommend you put together a small an orchestra with our bamboo panpipes and bamboo clacker. We also advise pre-warning the neighbours.
IMPORTANT: While we love to encourage music with the little ones, this product is not recommended for those under 3 years old (or anybody else who likes to chew things they shouldn't).
Dimensions: Height:14.5cm. Width: 1.5cm
Origins: Handcrafted by village artisans in Bali, Indonesia
The fair trade jewellery and handicrafts bought from Indonesia are all village produced. One village will tend to specialize in a certain craft e.g. some concentrate on silver, others bead work, others wood carving or bamboo work.
The communities are continually producing new designs to add to their collections.
Our supplier supports the development of their craft by paying a fair price to enable the artisans to source new materials and tools. He personally visits these small family businesses and maintains regular contact.
