Hang this piggy to invite good fortune into your home! This Smiling Pig ornament is made with quilled paper by artisans in Vietnam who work with Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts, a nonprofit that provides income generation and marketing services to artisans.
Quilled paper as an art form dates back hundreds of years - some historians believe it began just after the invention of paper, in China around 105AD.
With a quilled paper ornament or a quilled paper card, you can support an ancient art and a modern artisan through fair trade.
At Global Gifts, we work with vendors and artisans who are fair trade verified to bring you items that are ethically and sustainably made. Fair trade gifts are handmade by artisans around the world and they all have special stories. You might notice slight variations in this product from the product photo.
