Description

The 2019 Ornament collection features a diverse sets of styles, colors, and shapes! We decided to bring these together into collections so that you could buy 3 of a kind for a discount. This set of red embroidered ornaments feature the peace dove, a Christmas tree and a diamond floral ornament. The collection comes from the Dongxiang region in Asia. Celebrate the season of peace & goodwill through your purchase of this lovely ornament set! They’re hand embroidered in the traditional style of the Dongxiang people. You’ll receive the three featured ornaments – dove, tree & flower.

 

In a mountainous province in China lives the “Dongxiang” (DX). Impoverished and poorly educated, the vast majority of the Dongxiang are subsistence farmers, with an average yearly family income less than $200. Most Dongxiang men work far from home or have abandoned the family, leaving many women as sole providers. According to the 2002 census, the average Dongxiang receives only one year of formal education, with female illiteracy over 90%.

 

Most women do some farming, but many are stuck with no income & no way to provide for them selves if the men don’t show up with cash. These embroidered Christmas ornaments provide a way for these women to receive education, gain community and earn income.

We’re excited to partner with Flowers of DX and give them the opportunity to sell through us and share their handiwork with the world. Your purchase goes to supporting this partnership.
