Capiz Snowflake Ornaments
I always love when we add new Capiz pieces. These are so elegant & classic!
This elegant set of three handcrafted capiz shell ornaments begins at the bottom of the sea surrounding the Philippine Islands. Divers collect basketfuls of beautiful “windowpane” shells for Artisans like Retchel, who clean, cut, and bind them by hand into delicate snowflake-inspired ornaments.
Adventure Begins Journal
Journals are always a popular gift. They’re gender neutral & perfect for those who aren’t into jewelry or accessories.
This genuine leather journal is an excellent choice for anyone on your gift list. Handcrafted by Artisans in India, this 90-page journal features handmade lined paper and a wraparound leather cord closure for privacy. The beautifully embossed cover will inspire the adventurer in all of us with the words, “and so the adventure begins.”
The perfect gift for coffee lovers!
This handcrafted mug from Vietnam is inspired by a snowy winter night sky. Each mug comes with a rich dark roast blend of ground Mayan Blend Coffee that is grown, harvested, and roasted by our Artisan partners in the mountains of Guatemala.
Snowy Ornament Set
Add vintage farmhouse style to your holiday decor with this set of three handcrafted ornaments from India. Each set includes a whitewashed iron dove and two coordinating snowflakes, each topped with a silver threaded ribbon. Buy multiple sets and make your tree a winter wonderland of hope!
This star would go perfectly with the snowy ornament set! I would love to see a tree decorated with both!
Handcrafted by our Artisan partners in India, this whitewashed iron tree topper can coordinate with any holiday décor. From classic farmhouse to modern industrial, our Farmhouse Star will put the finishing touch on your Christmas tree.

Stars of Haiti
Having been to Haiti and met our artisans there, these next ornaments hold a special place in my heart!
These up-cycled cereal box ornaments will be the shining stars of your holiday décor! Each ornament is hand-rolled by mothers in Haiti, where our mission to Keep Families Together began.
Peace on Earth Nativity
Our Peruvian Nativity set from last year was my absolute favorite! I’m so glad we added a new nativity set from this artisan group!
This hand-painted nativity set is created by Artisans in Peru using hand-formed molds and local Peruvian clay.
Each set features six handcrafted figurines, including Mary, Joseph, cow, donkey, manger, and baby Jesus. Inspired by Peruvian culture, they are sure to inspire your holiday spirit.
This blanket was a HUGE surprise! It’s a beautiful year-round decor item that is also practical! It’s neutral colors means it will match a variety of interior designs!
Stay cozy this winter when you bundle up in our reversible blended cotton Sincerity Blanket. Featuring soft-black and off-white diamond patterns and fringed ends, this elegant throw gets softer with each wash, so it’s the gift that gets better with time.
We’ve never carried anything like these before! They have been wildy popular!

Snow Top Beanie
This winter wardrobe must-have will keep you comfortable all season. Artisans hand-knit this classic black and ivory color-block design using 100% wool.
