Tradeworks’ decoration line includes iconic Canadian figures like the moose, beaver, and Mountie, but it also gives a modern twist to a traditional Christmas character. Santa Claus can be found in a meditative state in the full lotus position or stretching out in the tree pose as he dangles from the evergreen. All the decorations are made from sustainable wood, and hand-made by women with barriers to employment in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The decorations are available online at www.tradeworks.bc.ca or in select stores in Vancouver.
