Re-Nest has chatted-up the absolute wonderfulness that is Aid to Artisans before. What we love: ATA not only supports 30,000 artisans annually by teaching them new skills, but they've actually created a fair trade marketplace that sustainably commercializes the artisans' talents. These paper mâché animals are just one of several ATA items that recently caught my eye at the New York International Gift Show. Love them!
