The Artisan Bird Nesters are our very first World Fair Trade Organisation product!
Purchasing our Fair Trade product helps both wildlife and people. In addition to giving a bird a nest you’ll be supporting the Artisan workers in Southern Bangladesh who make them. Funding the survival of many women and their families from rural communities in desperate poverty.
Handmade to the highest quality finish using natural sea grass and recycled saris. Every nester is unique in colour! Each individual artisan chooses the colourful recycled sari pattern making every nester different.
The Shesali is the medium sized ‘Oval’ model of our Artisan Wild Bird Nester range. Oval in shape it offers a medium sized cavity perfect for species of small garden bird who roost alone or in a pair. Offering a cosy place to roost during harsh winter months, plus in spring time small birds may use this Fair Trade product as a nest.
The Fair Trade Bird Nester has a sturdy inner frame for support. Attached metal hooks at the rear and a long loop at the top ensure you can fasten the nester securely. As a result these make it easier to site the nester in the natural leaf cover and vegetation of ivy, bushes, trees or hedges. The nester has a small round entrance reinforced with steel. It is also slightly protruding to make it easy for birds to land and perch on.
Position the bird nester in a sheltered space to keep out harsh weather. Preferably face the bird nester between North and South-East. A warm protected roosting space out of the prevailing wind can be a life saver for small birds during cold harsh weather condition.
