In our November box you’ll find an embroidered choker from an organization called Darzah. This beautiful choker can also be worn as a wrap bracelet and is embellished with a traditional Palestinian embroidery called “tatreez.”
This special type of embroidery is a Palestinian tradition that is usually passed down from generation to generation, mother to daughter. Darzah’s mission is to create economic opportunities for artisans and their families while also celebrating this beautiful Palestinian art. The women who participate in this project are refugees that live in the northern West Bank, an area where poverty rates are some of the highest in the region. This project provides training and job opportunities to some of the women who need it most.
Next, you’ll find a beautiful handmade luggage tag from Haiti Made, just in time for the holiday travel season!
Haiti Made, an organization created by the Hands and Feet Project, employs trafficking survivors, young adults transitioning out of orphan care, and other Haitians in need of empowering, sustainable work. The organization is working daily to diminish poverty and fight the orphan crisis in Haiti by providing dignified jobs and creating quality products.
Also included in this month’s box is a star garland from Prokritee, a non-profit company that provides underprivileged artisans in India with fair trade work.
Their programs focus on the dignity and creativity of every single worker. This garland will be the perfect addition to your holiday decorations and can stay up all year round!
