The sale of Fair-trade Christmas cards provide a sustainable income to the young people from Rwanda who make them. Each and every card is carefully made on beautiful textured recycled paper. They have a wonderful feel about them so unlike mass produced greeting cards.
Each gorgeous fair-trade card comes with a note on the back that explains the story behind them and each card is signed by the person who made the card. Its a lovely personal touch
