SheFinds Gifts: Christmas with a Conscience

Looking to give a present with a little meaning this year? Check out Diane von Furstenberg’s New York flagship store for a holiday find with a little heart. After visiting Rwanda in 2004, von Furstenberg has partnered with Economic Development Imports (EDImports), a company that is committed to building a market for handmade pieces from developing nations, to bring a collection of knitted mohair scarves packaged in hand-woven baskets to her store just in time for the holidays. The scarves, available in red or blue, were all knitted by members of AVEGA-a group of widows and dependents resulting from the 1994 genocide in Rwanda- and the baskets were woven by a cooperative of women founded by EDImports. Can’t make it to Diane’s shop to pick one up? Find more handmade items created by women living in Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda at edimports.com.
