Needlepoint Bauble Stockings x Thorn Alexander: A Kenyan Holiday
We are beyond excited to share with you an exciting new product on Thorn Alexander! These high quality, contemporary needlepoint stocking ornaments were hand-stitched by single moms in Haiti and signal boost initiatives dear to my heart.
These sweet little stockings come stitched and finished for the perfect seasonal gift. Having been raised by a single mom myself who also happened to be a teacher and a rural poverty specialist, this hits home and empowers women and children at every level of the process.
An additional 10% profit of this Thorn Alexandercollaboration stocking goes to Flying Kites, which is transforming primary education in rural Kenya and creating pathways out of poverty through their Teacher Training Center & Academy.
Each heirloom quality Bauble Stocking is hand-stitched with cotton threads and oh-so-soft velvet backing. From start to finish, the attention to precise detail makes this a very special gift.
6" long, 4.25" wide
Bauble Stockings are based on our friend Kate's family tradition, where the final gift of Christmas, or a clue to it, is found in your Bauble Stocking. It isn’t the most expensive gift, but it is the most thoughtful, and always makes you feel so loved.
Since launching, Kate has heard so many different uses for the Bauble Stocking. Amazing stories of kids searching the house on scavenger hunts, newlyweds who take turns planning a surprise trip each year, and even grandparents replacing their white envelopes with something that will become a treasure for years to come. A favorite will always be giving a Bauble Stocking to a parent or guardian- the task of working together to pick out this special gift for them each year is a memory that will last kids a lifetime.
Each Bauble Stocking is 100% hand-stitched and finished in Haiti for fair trade. Our stitchers are single moms who earn the equivalent of a nurse or teacher and can work from their homes. Starting this tradition in your home genuinely provides meaningful jobs in another.
