IKHETHA: Handwoven Snowman Christmas Decoration
The Christmas decorations that become true heirlooms are the ones that tell a story. With a scarf crafted from twisted sisal and a sweet little carrot nose, this snowman tree decoration comes from eSwatini, handwoven from local sisal grass.
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.
