I received the most beautiful Valentine's card from my mom this morning! She sent me the gorgeous, handmade, pressed flower card which you see above. It was made by Hope For Women, a Fair Trade Federation business that provides sustainable employment to economically disadvantaged, women artisans worldwide. This card in particular is from the Portraits of El Salvador collection which features the work of outstanding, female artists from the highlands of El Salvador.
Each card depicts the empowering portrait of a beautiful woman with a sensational hairstyle created from dried leaves and flower petals. Not only are each of these phenomenal cards framable pieces of art, they are also wonderful ways to contribute to talented women across the globe who are working hard to support their families and communities. The way I see it, there's no better way to celebrate an awesome woman in your life than with a conscientious purchase. I am certainly smiling ear to ear. Check out the website and you might find the perfect gift for that special someone. May there be Hope For Women year round! Happy Valentine's Day all!
