SILUHLAZA: Handwoven Green Love Angel Tree Decoration
With her heart shaped wings and a little halo above her head, this angel tree decoration in green and white comes from eSwatini, handwoven from locally-growing sisal grass. We adore her green swishy grass skirt!
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 stand the test of the time are the ones with a wonderful story behind them. 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.
