Mother’s Day is May 10th and we have brought out some our favorite things from Hope Artisan Collective that your mom…or mother figure…is sure to love. Not only will she enjoy any of these unique, artisan-made items, she will LOVE that the gift she receives is giving back by supporting the artisans who made them and the women working for Handspun Hope. Talk about a win-win….win!
OSTRICH EGGSHELL JEWELRY
This stunning collection includes necklaces and bracelets with a unique feel and a lovely story. Every disc on each piece is painstakingly crafted by hand from ostrich shells. The feel is wonderful - surprisingly light weight and the organic texture feels wonderful against your skin. We guarantee Mom has never seen anything like this!
Your purchase of this jewelry directly supports artisans working in Namibia. (You can read more about the amazing artisans making the jewelry by clicking here)
ETHIOPIAN LEAHER BAGS
Our buttery-soft leather bags are hand crafted in Ethiopia. Whether Mom is looking for that bag to carry everything or a small crossbody, we have the perfect bag for her frame and style. All are artisan made in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
INYAMBO HORN JEWLERY
This lightweight jewelry seamlessly blends organic feel with high-end style. Each piece is carefully crafted by an individual artisan working in Rwanda. Making use of a byproduct left from the meat industry in Rwanda, each piece is distinctly unique…just like Mom.
EMBROIDERED TEA TOWELS
These darling tea towels are so sweet, your Mom may say what mine did when I gifted her one: “But they’re too pretty to use!” Whether she chooses to use it in the kitchen (and she should….they wash and dry like a dream!) or hang it up for display, Mom is sure to love the sweet details on these towels. Each one is lovingly sewn by women working for More Than Sparrows, an organization based in Rwanda and dedicated to helping at-risk women escape the sex-trafficking industry. Talk about shopping for good! (You can read more about the amazing artisans at More Than Sparrows by clicking here)
Regardless of what gift you choose, what a powerful force you are when you choose to shop for good!
