These four hearts make a jolly addition to the Christmas tree. Handcrafted of ceramic, each ornament is hand-painted in colors of gold and white to accentuate flowing floral motifs. Bangladesh's Bertha Giti Baroi presents the ornaments, which dangle from the tree on lengths of golden zari thread. The ornaments arrive in a box made of recycled cardboard.
Bertha Giti Baroi is the director of a Bangladeshi fair trade organization that works for the welfare of the rural women artisans. "The organization was established in 1971 after the War of Independence to help war widows, victims and marginalized rural women who had become dependent on relief and sympathy," she says. "Our organization formed a cooperative handicraft project exclusively for women. We have been creating and exporting handicrafts around the world since 1973."
