19th of December: Felt Snowflakes

DecorationsThese beautiful snowflakes have fluttered over here all the way from India. They are made by a company called Teddy Exports. Teddy Exports have been hard at work on our felt Christmas decorations since February, providing employment to hundreds of people in southern India, including 50-80 hand-workers who are skilled at sewing, applying sequins and the fine handwork required to make each piece. 50% of all teddy exports’ profits go to the Teddy trust which sets up and runs community welfare projects, including a community health centre which has benefited over 100,000 people since it was established in 1994.
