STORY

Just send flowers and a sweet little note! A beautiful hand-pressed flower made from four golden raintree leaves from the Cassia Fistula tree. On a warm breeze, when in bloom, golden flowers rain down from this majestic tree and provide a locally-available source of materials for this beautiful card. Ethically handcrafted in small batches by environmentalist artisans with Prokritee, an organization in Bangladesh that provides jobs and skills training for women in under-resourced communities. Prokritee improves women's standard of living with safe jobs, fair wages, and the goal of self-reliance, helping mothers send their children to school to break the cycle of generational poverty. It employs women traditionally excluded from the market: widows, heads of households, rural poor, or landless without another source of income. They are experts at keeping waste out of landfills and waterways, using recycled sari, eco-friendly dyes, and their award-winning water-hyacinth paper.
