INDODA: Handwoven Father Christmas Decoration
It’s the big man himself! This Father Christmas tree decoration complete with a big red hat and a white belt across his tummy was made in rural eSwatini, handwoven from indigenous sisal grass. Check out his sisal beard!
Each hanging decoration in this collection of Christmas tree decorations brings sustainable work to rural artisans, from growing and harvesting the crop to preparing and dyeing the fibres – all before the weaving begins.
The Christmas decorations that become heirlooms are the ones that tell a story. The group behind this collection was set up by a pioneering founder with a mission to empower women through leadership workshops, handicrafts training and health education. In 1985 there were 12 women being mentored through this organization; to date over 1400 women have benefitted from working with this group and lead more empowered and sustainable livelihoods thanks to its support and guidance.
