Family Treedition is proud to partner with craftswomen in Kyrgyzstan to make our Jesse Tree Ornaments. Like an Advent Calendar, the ornaments and devotional take you from creation through the birth of Christ, starting on December 1st and concluding on Christmas Day.
Each ornament is handmade of Kyrgyz wool felt. Using techniques passed down through the generations, the wool fibers are matted, wet, rolled and pressed together to create the felt. Then, each pattern is hand-cut and sewn to make our heirloom ornaments.
This partnership has evolved into a Cottage Industry for the Kyrgyz women, allowing them to work in their homes and help provide for their families. Our team of 8 women have been integral to the design of these 26 precious ornaments that share an amazing story.
Set includes 26 handmade felt ornaments and a devotional book.
Quantities are limited, but will be offered each year.

I am so excited to start the Jesse Tree tradition with our little girl (age 2)! We are expecting our 2nd in February, so our kids will not know a Christmas without it! To me, it's totally worth it to splurge on the handmade ornaments... they are GORGEOUS! I'm actually ordering a set for my nieces and nephews in St. Louis today!!

Bought these at a festival and put them away for our grandchildren. We are hosting a Christmas Eve service at our home so I've been putting them out day by day to experience it and have them out for all the kids. They are WONDERFUL! VERY well made, completely children friendly! The devotional that goes with them is fantastic!! I can see that doing this every year your kiddos would have a great understanding of some MAJOR biblical events and the timeline of them!!
