'There is an angel factory in the Karoo'

These magical little angels are skillfully crafted by hand in two remote villages in the beautiful Baviaans region of South Africa's Karoo.

These classic angels are baba (baby) size with white ostrich feathers, wire or felted wool heads and knit wire wings with variations in bead colours to complement each style. 

What makes these angels even more magical, is every style has a name, and a meaning to that name, which is on a card attached to each angel.

Intended as a Christmas Tree decoration, the angels also make beautiful gifts and can have a variety of uses.  We have seen them suspended from the rear view mirror in a car, above a baby's crib, gifted or purchased in memory of a lost loved one or simply to add to a collection.
