Setting a Fair Trade Holiday Table

November 30, 2015

This Holiday Season, set the table with artisan made goods from across Africa.

 A few weeks ago, we teamed up with Alicia Lewin Photography to create an inspired Holiday table setting using some of our favorite African glassware, placemats and decorations. These gorgeous items were all made by fair trade artisans working out of Swaziland, South Africa, Uganda, and Cameroon - meaning you can feel good about the origins and story of each piece. What better way to celebrate the holidays than with decor that creates business opportunity, funds education, sustains native culture and tradition, and provides healthcare to families? Everyone wins.
