a closer look

Our hand-woven napkin rings will add simple elegance to your table, whether you are laying out a classy picnic, serving an intimate brunch or hosting Thanksgiving dinner.  Make a subtle statement for hope, justice and beauty- your napkin rings are a great conversation piece and the perfect opportunity to share the story of the women who wove them.  With the income from one set of napkin rings, an artisan can buy a new hoe for farming, shoes for her toddler, or even a chicken for producing eggs.  We invite you to meet the 3 groups of weavers below!

Each napkin ring is woven from natural sisal fibers that have been locally-grown and prepared by hand.  Choose from one of eight color combinations to match your home decor. With the purchase of 2 sets, shipping is free!
