The full moon rising over Makira Natural Park just outside of our artisan community in Madagascar is a magical sight to behold. It inspired this wall hanging which brings that stunning natural beauty into your home.
This piece is hand-crafted from Ceranchia wild silk, which is a species of silk only found in Madagascar. The silk cocoons are sustainably harvested, ironed flat, and sewn together. Then it is naturally dyed with plant material grown in our artisans' garden. This piece is dyed with a local plant called Foleramena, which gives a beautiful sage grey color. The gold moon is the natural undyed color of the wild silk.
Comes with a bamboo pole for easy hanging.
- Dimensions: 18"x18"

These art pieces were sustainably sourced and made in Madagascar by SEPALIM, a poverty alleviation NGO in northeastern Madagascar that invests in local leadership, community ownership and linking these partners to global markets. 100% of the profits from Tanana Silk are returned to our team in Madagascar.
Care instructions: Steam iron on low setting, if desired.
Seeing this behind me while on camera is calming. There's something biophilic in seeing the textures of the individual cocoons, and I love the colors.
I bought the wall hanging a few months ago. The photos do not do it justice. It’s a charming art piece, beautifully constructed. I could not be happier.
