OKHUPHUZI: Handwoven Orange Love Angel Tree Decoration
A handwoven Christmas angel for the top of your tree. With a skirt crafted from sisal fronds and a sweet little halo atop her head, this angel tree decoration in bright orange and white comes from eSwatini, handwoven from local sisal grass. We especially love her heart-shaped wings.
Each piece 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 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.
Add this beautiful handcrafted piece to your curation of Christmas decorations that will become family heirlooms over time.
