A bit of history: In the heart of the pandemic, with some time on my hands, I think about all the things I would like to develop with Little Yogi. For months, I have been thinking about a project in my head;
A LY decoration line.
I love everything that has to do with textures, baskets, and raw materials. I am enchanted by small hand-woven animals. What if we developed our own decorations? What if we collaborated with true artisans who have the knowledge? What if we could make a difference with this project?
So we made contact with a non-profit organization that fights poverty, and together, we developed our first item with artisans from Ghana.
Our first hand-woven Lion head.
Then by Three works to empower artisans to lift themselves out of poverty. They have developed the formula: 10x3, meaning that if they buy 10 items from an artisan over the course of 3 years and help them to invest their prosperity wages (2.5 times the local fair trade for the item) into 3 businesses, they can graduate from the program and become completely self-sufficient from a cash flow perspective. These are concrete actions to have a real impact in fighting poverty.
This is just a first step, a test product.
By buying this lion head, you are contributing to a fairer and more just world. You will also have all the necessary information to see who wove your lion head and even get in touch with the person.
