MHLOPE: Handwoven White Love Angel Tree Decoration
Christmas decorations with a story behind them are the ones that become true family heirlooms – and this handwoven angel is sure to be a favourite year after year. With a full skirt crafted from fine grass, a pair of heart-shaped wings and a sweet little halo atop her head, this angel tree decoration in white and beige was made in 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.
