This is special because...
My favorite childhood tradition was visiting Chicago Museum of Science & Industry's annual Christmas Around the World display in the Great Hall. Perhaps this fantastical forest of sky scraping trees decked in vivid colors and cultures spawned my life long curiosity in the similarities and differences of craft traditions around the world.
Our globally sourced ornaments celebrate heritages as vast and varied as the regions from which they hail: Kenyan woodcraft, Ugandan horn work, Indian lacquerware, Rwandan basketweaving and Haitian paper and punched tin traditions, to name a few.
