The stunning Purple Heart Wood lame was made with beautifully repurposed wood. It has been oxidized in the mountain air surrounding the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. Treated with a 100% Organic Walnut Oil, this wood is dull and flat when first cut. As the air reaches the wood, it oxidizes the enzymes of the tree and transforms the colour into an amazing and rich purple.
Every purchase of this gorgeous Bread Llama will go to a good cause. When you purchase this product, 100% of the funds are donated to a community centre called El Jordan, in the poverty stricken centre of Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
Bolivia is the second most impoverished country in South America. The centre of El Jordan strives to provide a place or growth and change — a place for people in the community to learn life skills, access early childhood education and find a safe home off the streets. The Purple Heart Initiative, and others like it, is essential to support those in communities that have struggled. After travelling to Bolivia in 2015, the folks at Bread Llama decided to commit to finding a way to give back from home. And this is just the beginning.
