Looking for last minute gifts? Check out Aveda’s Holiday 2009 collection featuring eight limited edition gift sets that take guests on a sensory journey of harmony and tranquility — and help support the indigenous communities and craftsmanship of northwestern Nepal.
Featuring many of Aveda’s all-time favorites, the Holiday 2009 collection celebrates the beauty of well-being while honoring the 500 year-old craft of Nepali papermaking. Every gift set is embellished with Lokta paper handcrafted by men and women in Malika and Dolakha — two forest regions high in the Himalayas.
“When you give an Aveda holiday gift embellished with Nepali Lokta paper, you support a centuries old indigenous craft, and help break the cycle of poverty for the next generation,” said Dominique Conseil, president of Aveda. “This example of successful micro-enterprise reflects the Aveda mission as it cares for both the community and the planet.”
Aveda’s exclusive Holiday 2009 gift collection includes the following sets: Caribbean Rejuvenation, Source of Replenishment, Celebrate with Color, Himalayan Glow, Seven Points of Balance, Ritual of Relief, Carry-on Companion and Conserve Vibrancy — all of which will be available for a limited time beginning November 2009 in salons, spas, stores and online at aveda.com.
