~I received a Kahiniwalla sample for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
This holiday season remember that the many of the more memorable gifts are often one of a kind, made with love by hand and/or gifts that have their own touching story. Kahiniwalla has a variety of unique products that are the kind of gifts meant to be treasured forever.
Kahiniwalla means the teller of stories in Bangla, the national language of Bangladesh, where these beautiful handmade toys, clothing and rattles are lovingly crafted. Kahiniwalla was established in 2010 by Austin and Marita Miller. Upon his return from work as a product designer with Mennonite Central Committee’s job creation program in Bangladesh, Austin and his wife Marita wanted to continue helping to provide employment for the poor of Bangladesh. They decided to do so by distributing high quality handmade products in North America made by the Pebble Brand.
Their Christmas Ornaments include holiday and animal themed ornaments and rattles as sweet as the precious little one you’re buying for. The most powerful stories Kahiniwalla products tell is of one of hope. Every purchase helps women in rural Bangladesh provide better lives for their own children by earning a fair wage.
The rattles are made with 100% cotton which is sure to last longer than those magical days of infancy! When the day finally comes to get rid of the baby gear this rattle is one of the items I will keep and treasure.
Each special piece makes a thoughtful, heartfelt gift for the children and grandchildren in your life. My girls enjoy talking about the background of these ornaments as we put them on the tree and it will now be part of our annual tradition. These high-quality products will last a lifetime, creating their own special stories of time spent together along the way.
