Festive and good for the environment (but maybe a bit scratchy on bare legs) the inspiration behind 'Inkuku' by London-based, South African designer Ryan Frank is a colourful South African chicken ornament. Named after the Zulu word for chicken, Frank combines his interest in traditional craft techniques and 'free range' recycled materials-- even the base is recycled aluminium. Playful and easy on the environment, its a topical trend to make us rethink our relationship with plastic bags.
