As part of taking for our natural resources, we also take into consideration in taking care of our animals like the birds. As part of showing care to the birds and the natural resources, Slovenian designer Metod Burgar had created the award winning Bird Feeder birdhouse.
This birdhouse, which is intended to be sold in “fair trade” shops, is designed as a way to assist Ugandan producers of raffia goods. It is made in the same way as traditional Ugandan baskets. A long sheaf of millet blades is wrapped in raffia to make rope-like structure, which is then wound spirally into a sphere. The birdhouse is made entirely from natural materials, which can be colored with natural dyes; in this way, too, patterns can be added to the birdhouse.
