Here we are in the end of 2015 and this is the first year I am right on track with all releases.
Caribou went back to Nepal to provide us with adorable Fair Trade ornaments again this year. The hand felting and applique details are done by a women’s felting business in Kathmandu. This is the same artisan who produced the 2013 ornaments.
They always put such great thought and care into choosing who they get the ornament’s from. This show’s how big of a heart Caribou has for the world. And I love that!!
