VIDA PLANTER 

LIMITED EDITION – While Supplies Last! 

Celebrate spring with this handcrafted three-legged ceramic planter from Nepal! Each Vida Planter features the artisanal style of the woman who created it. During the firing process, the glaze of each planter reacts uniquely to the temperature that’s specific to its position in the Artisans’ kiln, giving each planter a totally unique finish. The result is a beautiful variety of artisanal glazed finishes, including transparent shades of green, possible hints of blue, and some planters with a beautiful rustic “crackle” finish.

Whether you need just the right planter for your favorite succulent or want a stylish way to serve dipping sauces, this handcrafted food safe stoneware will add a fun finishing touch to your home décor. Grow your favorite herbs in style in your unique Vida Planter and then keep them trimmed and tidy with our Garden Scissors from India! Every purchase of this Vida Planter provides safe jobs with fair wages for women in areas of extreme poverty in Nepal.

Every planter has variations as a part of the Artisan-made charm!

The Impact of Your Purchase  

In many areas of Nepal, lack of education often makes it difficult for families to break cycles of extreme poverty. Lack of opportunities for safe jobs with fair wages often results in the exploitation of vulnerable persons by human traffickers. Every purchase helps provide these Artisans with education, job skills training, and seminars about health, nutrition, and women’s rights. Your purchase helps empower families out of extreme poverty in Nepal.    

   

Meet the Artisan:  Binu’s Story of Hope

I’ve been managing the finances of our Artisan community for over fifteen years. I always wanted to be involved as an Artisan and work with ceramics. So, two years ago, I began glazing and firing ceramics! Now I oversee production and orders that involve glazing and firing.  

Through this Artisan community, I’ve improved my financial status. I feel my communication skills have enhanced too. So, it’s motivated me to stay positive. Being a Trades of Hope Artisan partner has provided an opportunity to make new products and connect with different people – from the raw material collection process to the finished product. One of my favorite moments as an Artisan is when my work was appreciated, and we were given another order for it. I still feel happy thinking about it!

GARDEN SCISSORS 

LIMITED EDITION – While Supplies Last! 

Keep your favorite herbs and small houseplants trimmed and tidy with these Garden Scissors from India! Metal Artisans in India forge stainless steel to create the beautiful, primitive rustic handles of this practical and stylish must-have garden accessory. Why not display your favorite topiary in style in our Vida Planter from Nepal? Every purchase of these Garden Scissors provides safe jobs with fair wages for women in areas of extreme poverty in India. 

Every pair of scissors has variations as a part of the Artisan-made charm!

The Impact of Your Purchase  

The poverty cycle in India continues primarily because of the lack of education and essential resources that are often not available or affordable for children in India’s slums. Many of these children never learn to read or write and grow up with limited opportunities. Many families in India’s slums have limited or no access to health care or clean water. Your purchase helps provide Artisans in areas of extreme poverty and their children with access to education, health care, and clean water programs. Every purchase gives hope to families in India’s slums.  

Meet the Artisan: Meenal’s Story of Hope

This Artisan community provides safe jobs with fair wages for women in areas of extreme poverty in India, like Meenal. Meenal is married with three daughters. She has worked as an Artisan in her small village in northern India for the past two years. Her family is very supportive of her, as she continues to inspire more women in her area to begin working as Artisans and help their families overcome poverty. During holidays, she often teaches weaving classes.
