Product Description

Felted wool trivet / potholder from Kyrgyzstan, measuring approximately 8" square. Nora, the head of Hands of Hope Handicrafts, has an amazing vision to help hurting women. Her own background of domestic abuse gives her great empathy for the situation of women in her country. Her husband used to drink and abuse her, but through patience and counseling, he is in recovery. They work together to make objects of beauty and to represent their country's natural resources of leather and wool felt. This effort represents the family unity so badly needed in Kyrgyzstan. The couple now reaches out to the families of the women who sew for their workshop, helping them also try to overcome abuse and addiction so they can live together in harmony. In addition, by giving work to the women, it reduces the chance that they will seek work abroad, often falling into the deception of trafficking. Please be aware, due to the handcrafted nature of needle felted wool, exact pattern and dimensions of each potholder will vary slightly.
