Pictured above is our set of Gingerbread Snowflake Ornaments. Resembling delicious gingerbread cookies, these ornaments almost look good enough to eat. The ornaments are handmade by skilled artisans working in a fair trade production center in Kathmandu, Nepal. Nepal is a beautiful and mountainous country located in Southern Asia.

Taking special attention to detail in the creation of the of 100% natural wool designs, non-toxic and azo-free dyes are used. Painted with the appearance of white icing, these ornaments are perfect of course for hanging on a tree, but also make great gift ties on the top of a wrapped package. Or, you might try them hanging altogether in a window with their cotton loop string to hang. The unique four piece snowflake set is available now for the low price of $24.95 with Free Shipping this holiday season.

In addition to fair trade ornaments at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we also have our Cat & Dog Pet Stockings, as seen here to the left. The stockings feature handmade felt components, created and assembled by fair trade artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal. The felt designs are then appliqued onto the stockings and stitching is exposed to further their handcrafted appeal. 100% Natural wool forms an arrangement of red and white cuffed, pet themed stockings. Great for pet loving families, or even the pets themselves, these stockings are approximately 10″ in length. Customers can purchase our Cat and Dog, Pet Christmas Stockings for just $19.95 each with Free Shipping.
