Special Gifts For the Women in Your Life


How do you select a gift for the woman who already has everything? If you find holiday shopping for your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister or daughter challenging, Mela Artisans can make that task easier. You’ll find woven scarves in softest silk that have been made by hand using centuries old techniques; hammered brass cuffs that evoke the mysteries of an exotic land, exquisite photo frames, jewelry and keepsake boxes decorated by hand using traditional inlay and carving techniques. These are one-of-a-kind gifts every woman will love. Even more, she will know that her favorite new accessory supports entrepreneurship and sustainable development in artisan communities – meaning it’s a gift that really does keep on giving.

Fill Her Life with Color and Warmth

Macramé is a centuries old technique in which fabric is knotted rather than woven in the traditional manner. Mela Artisans has a brand new line of unique macramé scarves in a luxuriously soft silk-wool blend, hand-embroidered with delicate floral designs.  Best of all, the vivid hues of our Blossoms Collection will brighten up her holidays like nothing else!
