Looking for a great Christmas gift?

Scarlet Threads is a company that started in October 2009. They sell beautiful aprons made by rural Chinese women who are then paid fair wages for their labor. (copied from their website) "In a rural area home to many farmers, taxi drivers, and laborers, there are few job opportunities for women, many of whom only have an elementary-school education. By drawing on the practical skills they learned in their youth, we provide them with an unprecedented opportunity to earn a steady source of income for their families." Click on the Scarlet Threads box on the left of my blog to visit their store
My favorite...
