Hand made from telephone wire, this cute hippo key ring will add a splash of bright colour to your keys.  Key Rings can also be added as an accessory to zippers, backpacks and handbags.

The craft of Zulu telephone wire art is based on traditional basket weaving and was conceived by Zulu night watchmen, who would weave discarded telephone wire around their security sticks to keep themselves busy. This trend was then transformed by the women who then used the materials and technique to create colourful bowls, baskets and novelty items. 

As all items are individually crafted, small variations should be expected.
