I’m learning to be aware of the products I buy and where my money goes. There’s much injustice when it comes to buying and importing products from developing countries. I’m but one person. I can’t change the world but I can do good where I can.
So, I want to share Sue’s story. Sue had a desire to improve the lives of indigenous families from a developing country. On a trip to Bolivia, she made this a reality, buying local artistic goods to sell back in her home country, Canada.
Indigenous Crafts from Bolivia was born.
“Preserving their cultural identity through the production of traditional crafts is an important form of self-expression. The crafts we sell reflect the indigenous culture.” — Sue Berlove

I opened the package from Sue and was overwhelmed. The craftsmanship was stunning and there’s an amazing attention to detail. The product is utterly adorable! And it wasn’t just me that responded this way. My husband said, “It’s absolutely beautiful!” And the children? You can see how much they loved it.
I want to show you how it works
PS: I did look up the Musk Ox
