Tradeworks is pleased to release our new, “12 Days of Christmas” inspired ornaments this holiday! This set features laser engraved pieces with unique designs, perfect for the holidays. Each ornament is made out of wood sourced from Beetle Kill BC Pine, which is typically left unused or thrown out. The pieces are individually carved using a laser engraver, and assembled by the Tradeworks Custom Products team. These ornaments are perfect for anyone who wants to do their part for the environment, while supporting social justice enterprises.
Approximately 3 inches in diameter, the ornaments are laser cut with 3D layering to let the images stand in relief against the green tree needles. The full set comes in a beautiful wooden display/storage box, or you can purchase them individually, or in sets of 3.
The ornaments are created at Tradeworks Custom Products, which provides employment for inner-city women, who want to build both self-confidence and gain experience in the workplace. The initial ten-week training program is designed to teach women basic skills, the fundamentals of woodworking and joinery, and even laser engraving. In the end, our goal is to assist women in developing the skills they need to progress in a trade of their own choice. Participants come into this program with backgrounds of everything from personal trauma and addiction issues, to single mothers looking to build a better future. By purchasing these custom wood products you can help women lift themselves out of poverty, and create new hope in their life.
