From the Source Christmas Gift Ideas
Is it that time of year already?
As we countdown to Christmas we like to reflect on what we've accomplished in 2018. This year we've been extra busy, expanding our wool range, launching new clothing collections and bringing back more unique decorations, crafts and textiles from Nepal and India!
We've brought together some of our favourite 'gifty bits' for all you eagle-eyed shoppers to help you pin down those perfect presents for the big day.
Bohemian bags upcycled in India from vintage fabrics
Mirror-work, beading, embroidery and applique adorn these beautiful handbags and clutches, sourced from India. As artistic and detailed as they are practical, these accessories are one-of-a-kind!
Singing 'prayer' bowls from Patan
Singing bowls unleash a beautiful, sonorous sound borne from running the striker around the rim. Whether you wish to make powerful music or aid meditation and relaxation, a singing bowl can help whisk you away to those higher plains. Browse designs that incorporate the Buddha, Mandalas and Ganesh.
Leather journals from Rajasthan
For writers, drawers, and dreamers, explore a wide range of leatherbound notebooks and journals from Rajasthan. Find practical plain designs or beautiful embossed bindings featuring powerful details such as Mandalas and the Tree of Life.
Nepalese felt animals for an instant (adorable!) stocking filler
We don't think you're ever too old to enjoy one of these adorable, handmade wool felt animals! With cute details and soft shapes, these delightful creatures will make a treasured companion for Christmas and beyond.
Elephants, elephants, and more elephants!
Fair trade grandad shirts from Nepal
There's always one tricky person to buy for, but help is at hand with these loose-fitting 100% cotton grandad shirts. Comfy to wear and ruggedly stylish, these shirts are chosen by men of all ages.
Kantha-stitched Gudhri Textiles
We also wanted to celebrate our beautiful Gudhri textiles made in India. These designs are first printed using hand-block print techniques, before being overlaid with traditional kantha stitching. We have both throws and scarves made in this beautiful material.
