Bookends With Character: Tara Projects’s Palewa Owls

“This pair of wise sitting owls can hold your books in place or just decorate your shelf. Hand-carved and etched bookends are made from palewa, a dark, Indian soapstone used for carving.”

We are absolutely loving Tara Projects’s Palewa Owl Bookends (available at  Ten Thousand Villages and SERRV).  The perfect gift for a reader, teacher, or owl enthusiast. (Sara the Tea Lady is all three.)  But really, who wouldn’t want these charming fellows holding up their hardbacks?

We’re also super impressed by the TARA Projects organization, which “was established in 1973 to defend the rights of the poor. Beginning in Delhi, the organization expanded to adjoining states of North India, working to eliminate unfair trade practices and child labor, fighting exploitation of artisans and supporting fair trade and human dignity.”

Peace and Love,

Your Fair Trade Trendsters
