rainbow ridge throw

Item No. 65720 $495.00

A striped wool throw that will accent any space with distinctive style and source-conscious character.

Made just for Sundance, this brightly striped throw celebrates a collaboration of a dozen years between Sundance and the master knitters of Bosnia and Herzegovina. We supplied a design based on old serapes to our Bosnian artisans whose skills turned it into a warm and striking throw, giving employment to hundreds of women and supporting traditional craft techniques. Wool. Hand wash. Exclusive. 50" x 60". Internet Exclusive.
For 12 years, these Bosnian artisans have partnered with Sundance. Traditional craft techniques are a very important part of their cultural heritage, and steady support from Sundance has kept these techniques alive. Each product sold to international markets represents the beauty of the tradition and native skills of our artisans. This heritage is found in Sundance products ranging from knitted blankets, baby socks, hats and slipper socks, to Christmas stockings and tree skirts. In Bosnia, Sundance provides 700 artisans work and steady income. Though this may appear insignificant in some countries where unemployment reaches nearly 50%, the biggest percentage of marginalized population being war widows and single mothers with very poor education, the impact is immense. This steady income has changed lives, allowing mothers means to pay for school for their children, purchase computer equipment, and renovate their homes recently devastated by war.
