It’s almost that time…the holidays are coming!
Each year I tell myself that I want to present a homemade holiday to my family and friends, sharing and exchanging gifts that are either made by me or carefully selected from a businesses with a message. This is the year that I am actually going to do it!
I have nothing against large retailers but after attending a local craft show I realized there are some really talented crafters out there and I am really digging what they are doing. Also, since I have a platform to share, why not use it?
Each week I would like to share a special vendor and today I present Holiday Treasures by Kahiniwalla.
Kahiniwalla means the teller of stories in Bangla, the national language of Bangladesh, where these beautiful handmade toys, clothing and rattles are lovingly crafted.
Each special piece makes a thoughtful, heartfelt gift for the children and grandchildren in your life. These high-quality products will last a lifetime, creating their own special stories of time spent together along the way.
But perhaps one of the most powerful stories Kahiniwalla products tell is of one of hope. Every purchase helps women in rural Bangladesh provide better lives for their own children by earning a fair wage.
Holiday Treasures by Kahiniwalla:
- Christmas Ornaments – Holiday and animal themed ornaments and rattles sweet as the precious little one you’re buying for.
- Character Hats – Keep little heads warm and whimsical with adorable animal, monster and fun striped hats.
- Fox, Chicken, and Raccoon Rattles – 100% cotton animal rattles sure to last longer than those magical day of infancy.
Kahiniwalla was established in 2010 by Austin and Marita Miller. Upon his return from work as a product designer with Mennonite Central Committee’s job creation program in Bangladesh, Austin and his wife Marita wanted to continue helping to provide employment for the poor of Bangladesh. They decided to do so by distributing high quality handmade products in North America made by the Pebble Brand.
