Looking to give a present with a little meaning this year? Check out Diane von Furstenbergâ€™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. Canâ€™t make it to Dianeâ€™s shop to pick one up? Find more handmade items created by women living in Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda at edimports.com.
