About 4 months ago, I got a part time job at an amazing nonprofit organization here in Charlotte North Carolina called Braveworks. I am so grateful for my new role and so grateful that I can continue my design business, just more in a freelance role.
I got the privilege to create a holiday tablescape using some of our amazing products at BraveWorks for a natural organic setting which has always been the foundation for my design aesthetic.
BraveWorks is a nonprofit serving women locally and globally who are overcoming human trafficking, abuse, addiction, generational poverty and ethnic persecution. Braveworks' mission is to bridge the gap from pain to purpose for these women who become artisans. They begin to recognize their own worth and capabilities through impactful connections, inspired creations and economic confidence.
I have been really enjoying my new role, BraveWorks' sales lead for corporate gifting. We have many unique sustainable gifts especially for the holiday season. Featured here is our cattle horn collection which you can find on our home decor section of our website.
Our cattle horn products are ethically and sustainably sourced. Workers in Kampala, Uganda collect the discarded horn from businesses in the beef industry, which contributes to a circular economy, helping ensure no part of the animal is wasted. Artisans then collect the discarded Ankole horns and take them to their modest workshop where they heat the horns to transform them into beautiful bowls, servers, and jewelry components.
Find the perfect gift for your loved ones on our site at BraveWorks.org and share our artisans' stories with them. You'll find something for everyone in our Dilworth and online shops.
