Here at Three Stone Steps we’re about to get an early–and not a tiny– shipment of our famously amazing recycled dreidels to send out some retailers.
I’m told I talk about my dreidels incessantly but I find them sort of amazing. I think it might be because they were the first really different product I worked on before branching out to recycled Judaica made in Haiti. You can see the dreidels below. (I never tire of showing them off. Ever. )
They’re made by a collective of mothers in a very depressed area of a barangay (sort of a neighborhood unit) in Quezon City, which is a part of Metro Manila in the Philippines. Before I worked with this collective of women to make dreidels, they were making great ornaments out of recycled paper. I’ve carried these for a few years, will do so again this holiday season, and they’re wonderful. A sample of our new color combination is right here:
And, here’s a few of the women who made these great holiday creations:
And, finally, this is Venus. I see her all the time since she’s on the hangtags for both the recycled ornaments and the dreidels:
