These cute little racing cars are hand carved from albesia wood and painted vibrant colours. Albesia is fast growing tree which produces a lightweight soft wood. In making these wooden toys artisans learn valuable job skills such as operating a lathe, painting, polishing and sanding. Hand crafted by skilled artisans working with Gospel House Handicrafts Ltd, Trade Aid's fair trade partner in Sri Lanka.
Please note this is for one car, and as they are assorted it will be luck of the draw which colourway you get.
