Are you looking for a gift for the yogini in your life? Or just feel like some self-care is in order? Look no further. Our J'adore le yoga gift set includes the following ethically sourced items:

A handmade yoga headband made of 100% cotton by the artisan Pauline Ajavon in her workshop in Bohicon, Benin. She works with local carvers who create designs in wood block that she then uses in her natural batik process. Pauline is known in the community for her commitment to gender equality and access to education.

A set of 3 natural grass bracelets handwoven by women who have formed a cooperative in the village of Dikokore, in northern Benin. These bracelets are typically worn as a symbol of solidarity for celebrations and festivals. The money that these women earn from their cooperative allows them to live with dignity, to feed their families, and to pay school fees for their children.

A pair of natural coconut earrings made by the artist Kastro in her atelier in Cotonou. Kastro loves creating new designs in fashion, and has a particular passion for colorful wax print fabric. We are the sole source for the Kastro Collection in the United States.

The best part of the gift set? Each purchase allows us to provide 4 hours of tutoring to children in the artisans' communities. Many of these children live in homes with no electricity, running water, or sanitation facilities, and would be at risk of early marriage or child labor if they do not get passing grades. 

Gift the gift of meaningful work, empowering education, and handcrafted designs this giving season. The light in us bows to the light that is in each and every one of you. Namaste.
