THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: GiftsLand - Sapna
Matr Boomie is a wholesale fair trade collection from India that marries modern design sensibility with inspiring traditional art forms, bringing people and cultures closer together.
They began in 2006 with the mission of creating opportunities for women and minorities to realize their creative, economic and leadership potential. Since then they have grown their network to empower 20,000 artisans in 40 partner communities throughout India. Their passion has enabled them to build a credible force in the Fair Trade market while making critical differences in the lives of partner artisans, their families and communities.
One of Sapna’s recent accomplishments was taking advantage of a special no-interest loan that GiftsLands offers its employees to purchase a scooter or bike to commute to work. Sapna was able to purchase a brand new scooter, making her the first in her family to own a vehicle. She says one of her proudest moments was riding the scooter to work the first day after she purchased it. We see how incredible you are, Sapna, and we applaud you for your perseverance and accomplishments! "
"Nothing says party-time like some pom-poms. Even before they arrived at your door, these festive garlands have been at the center of family gatherings.

The income these families receive by working with GiftsLand to produce your new piece of unique decor is often equal to or more than the wages they earn during the day. The extra work allows them to improve their economic standing, keep children in school, and ensure everyone is healthy and provided for. "
Perfect for what I wanted.
I did not use garland in the the traditional way. I added photos to display in my office. I loved how it looked so much that this is the second one I ordered to add more family pics to the wall.
Love this felted garland! Decorated my daughters dorm room with them! She loves them.
Got these in our subscription box and I’ve always wanted some! Nicely made felt ball garland ... you can use for decor around the house, cat toy or a Christmas tree garland. One of my many favorite items!
Not for me
Received it in a monthly box, there is no real use for it .
