National Women Support Women Day, Dec 1st
Women in society experience struggles that leave them to fend for themselves. In 1909, 15,000 women marched the streets of New York demanding their basic rights & to end violence against women regardless of race, religion, gender identity, and ethnicity. Thus, on December 1st, 2018, National Women Support Women's Day was declared a national celebration in recognition of the importance of all women, and celebrating themselves.

Make A Gift Day, Dec 3rd
Think of someone who doesn’t like gifts. None, right? We all love giving gifts and receiving them. Studies by biologists even mention that the gifting practice establishes an evolutionary act of dominance and affection. Even though it is not an official holiday, Make A Gift Day encourages people to personally make gifts for their loved ones.
The ideal practice to learn is Furoshiki– a sustainable, eco-friendly, and more personalized way of giving gifts. As a small business supporting a more eco-friendly lifestyle, we’ve curated a virtual experience to learn and share the idea of Furoshiki. Perfect for the holidays, for any celebration!
