Beautiful Handmade Fair Trade gifts from Acacia #Fairtrade

Acacia Creations

These beautiful handmade starts and so versatile.  They can be used to hang on trees, decorate windows or used in table and mantle settings.  They can also be used year round.  I have a lot of Primitive decor in my home and the stars look beautiful incorporated into many of my settings.  I wanted to give you am idea of how you can use the stars, so I hung them on my foyer tree and also placed them in a table setting.

 A group of women in New Delhi recycled cotton hosiery cuttings to make the paper-like material and then screen or block print the designs by hand.  I love that the material is 100% recycled and that steady, dignified work opportunities are created.  

This set of mini star lanterns is handmade in India from tree-free paper. Artists recycle cotton hosiery cuttings then dye, decorate and cut the “paper” by hand. This is a fair trade handcraft that provides a fair wage in a safe and dignified working environment. The set includes six 5-inch mini stars in an assortment of glittering gold designs.
