Poinsettia or Snowflake

7.45 GBP

This Mexican bunting, known as "papel picado" (or cut paper) is a unique alternative to Christmas garlands.

The strip comes in a snowflake (red & white) or poinsettia design (green & white).

Although it looks laser cut, the paper is cut by Mexican artisans, who use a hammer and chisels to create the designs on stacks of tissue paper. Unlike plastic bunting, our bunting is recyclable and has a low environmental impact due to the production process - and it's truly Mexican! These colourful and intricate banners are used to decorate Mexican street parties, festivals, Christmas, christenings, weddings and birthday parties!


Measurements:
- Total length 4.5 metres
- Length of ties at each end 20cm

- Each strand features 10 flags

We work directly with the artisans from Puebla, Mexico and ensure we always pay a fair price for their work and help to provide sustainable employment for the communities we work with.

We recommend using at least 3 strips for maximum effect. The strip can be hung from any wall without nails as it's so light, even blue tack will do. Lamp posts and tree branches work just as well and they create a beautiful and soft effect. A very cost-effective way of decorating your special day!

The strip can be cut shorter if needed. Eco-friendly (recyclable). Please note bunting is not a toy, keep children away from string.
