DESCRIPTION

These genuine leather hearts were hand stitched by the women of Street Hope in Kenya. This group is comprised of sixteen precious women from Mathare slum who have lived much of their lives on the street. Many were orphaned as children and had only known life on the street, and others were homeless due to difficult circumstances. All were doing whatever necessary to survive and provide for their children.

We started simply by teaching the women how to do a basic hand stitch. It’s miraculous to see these women, one by one, grow in their skills and become confident seamstresses. Each leather bookmark was hand stitched with love. The leather was sourced locally in Kenya.

This leather bookmark was included in our May Fair Trade Friday Original Box!
