Sweet Stone Candle Gift Box

Item # 35736
No longer available

Give the gift of light -- packed inside a precious, pillow-topped gift box. Each box contains a candle, set within a hemisphere of sandstone, that connects you to women artisans creating a new life for themselves and their community.

  • Handmade gift box
  • Candle measures 2" T x 3.5" dia. (5.19 x 8.9 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from South Africa

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Working from a studio on the border of South Africa and Lesotho -- historically a very poor region -- these artisans are all women from the Basotho tribe who have managed to make a living wage handcrafting unique designs. HIV/AIDS is a very real and urgent problem in the region, having claimed the lives of several women who helped form the group, and the organization works to combat both this problem and poverty through education, support services, and a sustainable income for the artisans who work there.

Created to help women worldwide gain economic security for themselves and their families by earning fair wages for their handiwork, Global Girlfriend sources women-made, fair-trade imported, eco-friendly products. By supporting long-term partnerships with the artisans, it fosters equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance, and development strategies to help reduce poverty, one community at a time. Become a "Global Girlfriend" and help build a brighter future for girlfriends around the globe!
