H-E-B’s floral and gift shop, H-E-B Blooms, has recently launched a new, exciting product line.
Meet Village Artisan, gift giving with meaning. Each and every one of their unique items is handcrafted in North India. With every purchase of these pieces, you are helping share their story with the world and make a significant impact in their community.
What’s the story behind Village Artisan?
Village Artisan is one of hope, dignity, and empowerment that comes from the opportunity to be trained in a skill and to work at a fair wage in a caring community.
More about these one of a kind, Village Artisan fair-trade goods:
Village Artisan has a number of unique and one-of-a-kind offerings like handmade jewelry and scarves. (Scarves are up cycled and many jewelry pieces have up cycled elements from reclaimed saris.)
I’m a paper goods geek. My office is full of notebooks and all kinds of stationary so of course, my favorites of the Village Artisan collection are the stationary, cards, and notebooks. Each of these items is made with 100% recycled cotton. You can literally feel a difference and know this stationary is of substance (both physically and figuratively).
After learning the backstory about the products, you get a really good feeling to every touch. Your item was personally made for you with special love and attention. In turn, these artisans are so grateful for your purchase because it’s absolutely helping to change their world.
Gift giving with meaning and purpose behind it. Give a gift that gives back half way across the world.
Next time you’re in need of a special gift for a friend, family member, or loved one, visit your local H-E-B Blooms. Village Artisan items are complimented beautifully with fresh flowers.
The #VillageArtisan mission is to make #aglobalstoryofchange.
