  • Ten Thousand Villages Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Hostess

    Posted on June 27, 2014

    Invited to a holiday party? Or staying with friends this holiday season? Thank your host and hostess with one of these fairly traded gifts.

    Mouse Cheese Knife. Whimsical mouse always finds the cheese. Stainless steel cheese knife is made by metal workers of Noah’s Ark, a fair trade organization in Moradabad, India. The cost of metals has skyrocketed in recent years, which has had a devastating effect on the local economy and on the lives of individual artisans. Noah’s Ark has worked hard to train artisans in using alternative metals and materials, as well as to create appealing designs such as this product. Suggested retail price, $10.
