Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Since the death of her husband, Seji has not only survived — she has managed to thrive. She has grown her workshop and is now able to offer work to other artisans in her community.

Seji learned to carve from her husband. Sadly, he passed away and she was left to support herself and two children. Before he died, her husband urged her to be strong and become her own woman. She has done so and has grown their workshop. She now gives work to other carvers, and two women hand-finish the sculptures.

Seji learned to carve from her late husband. Their workshop continues to produce his designs and also the ones Seji has developed. She teaches her assistants to carve and carefully instructs her finishers in how to refine each detail of the sculptures.

Novica sales provide Seji with a steady income that has enabled her to grow her workshop. She is able to not only support her son but to provide steady wages to her workers, enabling them to support themselves and their families.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Seji Taram is a widow. Her daughter is grown, Seji is raising her young son alone.

Seji is determined to give her son the best possible education.

"Hatchling Dragon"

This is a cute and detailed piece. My husband loved it! He has several different dragon pieces and this complements those. The color and finish of this is also special. Not too big in size that it can be displayed just about anywhere.

"Surprise present!"

Received the dragon as a present, so it was a very nice surprise. The wood carving is great, is a well done sculpture. And now the dragon sits in my desk, burning to ashes some of the paper work when not in the mood.
