There are two sizes of banana beads – 1cm (small) and medium (3cm). All are handmade by a co-operative outside Kampala Uganda. They are beautifully woven by hand from actual dried banana leaves for a sleek and smooth finish. Banana beads are ideal for creating unique jewellery pieces as well as for decorative purposes on other crafts too. All the beads from Mzuribeads are sourced directly from Uganda and are Fair Trade. Photo 3 shows both the small and medium banana leaf beads so you can see the difference in size and shape.
There are other listings should you wish to buy the beads in packs of 5 or if you wish to buy the medium banana leaf beads.
By buying these beads you are helping Mzuribeads in Uganda which is a community based inspirational project moving away from charitable aid and onto the concept of business enterprise for sustainable income and development. Check out their website for more information: www.mzuribeads.com

Shipping & policies
As soon as payment is received your order will be shipped by Airmail with Australia Post. I ship worldwide and if you would rather your item be posted by Registered Post with Australia Post then please contact me before you buy so that I can provide you with a price for your approval. Shipping prices include postage and packaging. If postage & packaging is less than quoted when I go to my local post office I always reimburse the buyer and an email will be sent informing the buyer. Please allow at least 21 days for your package to arrive if you live outside Australia. If after this time you have not received your package then please contact me and I will try to sort out this problem.
Australia Post prices are not as cheap as in some other countries due to the distances that your package will have to travel. Some of my beads are of the shape that they can not fit into letter packaging and so have to be posted as a parcel. This does mean though that it is sometimes cheaper to buy 2 packs of beads as the postage will be the same for the 2 packs as for one eg large barkcloth beads it is the same price to post for 2 packs as for 1 pack. Another example is that it is the same price to send you 3 packs of paper beads as for 1 pack of paper beads. If you are in doubt please email/convo me and I will check out the price for you. Shipping costs include the cost of postage and packaging and I try and wrap your beads securely so they arrive in a good condition.
Should your goods arrived damaged please let me know as soon as possible and we will discuss how to rectify.
Paypal is accepted but you don't need a Paypal account to pay with Paypal. Just follow the payment instructions to be guided through the payment procedure. If postage/packaging is less than quoted when I go to my local post office I always reimburse the buyer and an email will be sent informing the buyer.
