Ngwenya Glass Hippo Bookends

These pair of beautiful hand blown and totally fair trade glass hippo bookends were made in the Ngwenya Glass factory in Swaziland.

The hippo bookends are exquisitely made and very heavy! Not only do they make amazing looking book ends but they would be perfect paperweights too.

As each Ngwenya Glass hippo bookend is individually mouth blown there will be some variation in colour, height and thickness.

The Ngwenya Glass hippo bookends are 100% recycled glass, made from bottles collected by the people of Swaziland. Ngwenya Glass works with the local schools to instil in the children a sense of environmental awareness.

In 1989 Ngwenya Glass launched the Kingdom of Swaziland’s most successful¬† wildlife conservation fund, known as the Ngwenya Rhino & Elephant Fund. A percentage of all Ngwenya Glass sales goes to the fund that runs a refuge for endangered species in the Swaziland lowveld, saving these rare and endangered animals from the brink of extinction.
