A new web site and product brand, SafariPod, has been announced today with the first products offered being a group of six tropical wood jungle animal iPod stands that are hand-carved in Kenya, Africa. No two SafariPod stands are the same, as all are made individually by different native carvers. Each is truly a personal work of art, created just for you.
The first SafariPod products are sixlittle iPod stands for all full-size iPods. Offered are hand-carved figurines of a cheetah, elephant, lion, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, and giraffe. The figurines are carved to meet the Kenya “Good Wood” guidelines for conserving native hardwoods (more info: Consumers Urged to Buy ‘Good Wood’ Carvings). Each figure sells for $99.99.
SafariPod plans to offer a growing line of technology art, all hand carved from native woods by craftsmen in Kenya, Africa. All products will be stocked and shipped from a facility in the United States. And, all web orders from the SafariPod site will be for USA sale, only. Non-USA buyers will purchase their SafariPod items from dealers in their own international areas.
The six iPod stand figurines are available for pre-order for September 8, 2006 shipment here: http://www.safaripod.com/ipod_products.html
