Mary and Baby Jesus
Exotica Sri Lanka
From our Purveyor of Home Goods:
A faith based design like this might come from the artisan hand of a craftsman from New Mexico, Arizona, California, or Mexico. Not so! This batik tapestry is proudly handmade in Sri Lanka by craftspeople just as enamored with the Spirit of the West as we are!
Sri Lanka, a nation devastated by a tsunami, is rebuilding. Did you know that Sri Lanka has been a U.S. trading partner for 200 years? As Westerners, we share many of the same core values. Our beliefs in discipline, integrity, honesty, patriotism, fighting for the right, love for humanity, and protection of our families are areas we share. And, OutWest shares a desire to support the Dreamers.
This product line was presented to me by such a Dreamer. The founder of Exotica Sri Lanka's dream is to help his Motherland get back on her feet. Working closely with fine artisans of leather, batik, and fabric, these product lines have been long recognized for their quality throughout Europe, Canada, Australia, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Now it's time to introduce these high quality items to America. OutWest is pleased to be a partner in this dream.
