This fascinating rainstick is made from a real cactus plant from the Atacama Desert in Northern Chile.
The cactus used for this natural rainstick is deadwood collected by mule from hills high inland. They are cleaned and hollowed, with the cactus needles being used for spiking into the interior which is then filled with pebbles before sealing, bringing you the sound of rain from the desert.
Finished with a colourful cotton wrap.
Also known as a rainmaker, rainsticks give us a lovely paradox: how can something from the world’s driest region, made from a cactus, sound like a tropical downpour?
