Archipelago Bird Greenshank Block Hand Carved Fair Traded:
This Archipelago Bird Greenshank Block Hand Carved Would be a great addition to any home as a lovely decorative piece. For example it would be a great gift for any occasion. For instance the common Greenshank is a medium sized slim wader with a dark grey back & white underparts. And it’s long green legs and slightly upturned bill help to distinguish it from other waders. In addition it calls regularly and is seen singularly and in small groups. But Greenshanks can normally only be seen to the north & west of Scotland in summer around boggy moorland and peatland pools. Consequently on migration it can be found across the UK, inland around lakes and freshwater marshes. Also, as well as coastal wetlands and estuaries, with the largest numbers close to the coast. But in winter it is found on the estuaries of south west England, Wales, West Scotland and Northern Ireland.

has been selling Archipelago Wooden Birds, Fish and associated Sculptures for 16 years when Nick first opened the doors of Avant Garden on March 17th 2000. Nick has always been very keen on wildlife in general and so to see the range at Archipelago, was a must for him to sell them in the shop.
Archipelago has a very strong ethic which has helped to make the brand very strong. The product portfolio has changed over the years to accommodate new exciting Sculptures, but with the quality of each item being so high and the care and attention given by the Sculptors being so incredibly accurate, they go from strength to strength.

has always been a strong supporter of Fair Trading. And has built up & kept very good long term lasting relationships with all of the Carvers and Sculptors. Consequently the standards of the Fair Trade Policy is always monitored. From when the first sketches are drawn up, photos of real birds and fish etc. are taken, to the creation and then to the final product the design team at Archipelago work directly with the skilled Carvers and Sculptors to bring you a piece of art that is unrivalled in the market place.
Because these Birds and Fish are Fair Traded it also means that the numbers are always limited, so you will never see Archipelago Sculptures mass produced and in the big stores. Thus keeping them an exclusive and beautiful Collection.
Archipelago has now grown to be a Design Label, recognized now for both interiors and exteriors with the addition of the new Metal Birds. Click here for the full range of Archipelago Metal Birds
All of the carved sculptures carry Fair Trading and story labels. In addition the branding logo gives customers the additional assurance that they are buying a genuine Archipelago product.
