Tree In Tree Garland

Jute grows in abundance in Bangladesh where the Tree in Tree Garland is made. The innovative makers there create jute paper which is screen printed with a beautiful gold metallic Christmas tree design on both sides of each of the 9 trees on the garland. The tree shapes are then filled with stuffing to create unique 3-dimensional trees in shades of blue, gray and light blue, with dark gray paper trunks. This garland pairs with the Tree in Tree Ornament (sold separately).
