Eco-Friendly Souvenirs

Shark Life, Sodwana Bay

Wood Charmer had the honor of working with SharkLife, a marine conservation group, to create a range of eco-friendly souvenirs for the gift shop at their newest facility, SharkLife Sodwana Bay, South Africa.

Conservation souvenir product, fair trade hand beaded wooden charm bracelet from South Africa
Eco-friendly glass bead and natural wood charm bracelets. Hand beaded by Africa!Ignite, a member of the World Fair Trade Organization. Perfect for a conservation souvenir shop!

After designing the small wooden shark charms, we invited Africa!Ignite to join, bringing their beading expertise in, to create something memorable.

Fair Trade Souvenir Wooden Products and Display
This souvenir display was crafted by us to showcase the fair trade beaded charm bracelets and  shark key tags to visitors at the marine conservation gift shop.

Africa!Ignite is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization.  Their focus is rural development in South Africa, partnering with communities, especially woman and youths, so that they can participate fairly in the economy and global society while practicing their traditional bead-working craft.

Eco Friendly Marine Conservation Souvenir Key Chain
Our eco-friendly wooden key chains were crafted to represent the big 5 species of shark that swim off the shores of KwaZulu Natal. Designed specifically for SharkLife Sodwana Bay, these key tags are available in their marine conservation gift shop.
Eco-friendly Wooden Africa Souvenir Key Chains
Our Africa key chains, custom crafted for SharkLife Conservation Group, have been engraved on bulky 8 mm Jacaranda wood for a substantially weighty feel.

We’ve crafted these eco-friendly drink coaster sets from light birch wood.  The “circling shark” engraving is a deep amber wood burn in vibrant contrast to the natural tones and subtle grains of the birch.

Eco friendly wooden drink coaster for conservation souvenir shop
Perfect for a conservation souvenir shop, these wooden coaster sets are a uniquely beautiful take-home memento for SharkLife visitors.

We’ve custom crafted this set of Big 5 shark fridge magnets from a layered maple – walnut ply wood to create deep rich contrast and accents through our engraving process.  Our sturdy display stand mirrors the earthy hues of the product for a cohesive merchandising package.

Environmentally Conscious Souvenir, Wooden Fridge Magnets
Fridge magnets are always a favourite souvenir. We’ve custom crafted these wooden sharks into an environmentally conscious product, ideal for a conservation keep-sake.

We’d be honoured to work with you and your organisation to design something completely unique that closely follows your ideals for an environmentally and socially responsible product range.  Contact us at to see what we can craft for you.
