This unique fair-trade ornament represents a Peruvian striped owl. These nocturnal birds of prey which have both red and brown variations are found throughout the Peruvian Amazon. It will look great hanging on your Christmas tree, rear-view mirror or adding a colorful touch to another part of your home. This ornament was woven with chambira palm fiber by a native Amazon artisan.

Please remember that each ornament was hand-made so the exact design of the craft may vary from the photo shown for this model.
