On the island of Madagascar the art of modelling recycled tin cans is called "kapoaka". The cars, bicycles, planes and scooters are made from discarded pop and beer cans. They are skillfully constructed in small workshops, creating sustainable employment for hundreds of crafters.
Bundu Designs worked with a co-operative based in Madagascar which was established to unite disparate workshops which were working with Malagasy handicrafts. It provides Fair Trade employment to formerly impoverished artisans in crafts. With the profits generated by the workshops, the Kapoaka artisans have built their houses, bought rice fields and established a pig-breeding farm. Models include iconic designs and every piece is unique because of the raw material available.
