Hey you guuuuuyyyysss! It's like a pirate ship that sails through the sea above. All I need now is an eye patch, a sloth mask, pinchers of peril, and an inhaler and I could be some sort of deconstructed Goonie for Halloween.

Haptic Lab's Sailing Ship Kites are each handmade in white, green, or blue, and both are fly in name and do fly in practice. They measure 26" x 28" and, like their sea-faring sailing counterparts, perform best in very strong winds.

All Sailing Ship Kites are also certified Fair Trade, made by Balinese artisans from locally-sourced bamboo and nylon.

Muchas danke to The Green Head.
