A lovely reminder of our interconnectedness to each other and the world, the Tree of Life Breadwarmer is a testimony to our resilience and perseverance even in the face of adversity. Perhaps no time is better than now for such a symbolic gift to give to a favorite friend or to share with your own loved ones. Knowing too that the basket is handwoven by women in Bangladesh from jute that is cultivated locally while the whitewashed terracotta warming stone inside is hand-inscribed by more artisans creates an even greater sense of belonging on a global level. Pass the bread and share the love.
When you purchase this handmade product, you are also providing the artisans in Bangladesh with necessary employment, access to healthcare, fair wages, and education for their children who would otherwise not be able to attend school. You are also aiding the small-scale farmers and their environmentally-friendly jute cultivation, whose crops are used in the weaving of the basket. Business education, health and nutrition training, women's advocacy, deep wells for fresh drinking water, sanitary toilets in homes, and even environmental and reforestation programs also benefit these incredible artisans, and thus empower them and their communities!
Each measures approximately 3"h x 12"w x 9"d.
