Given that these stockings are being sold retail, wouldn't you figure they were assembled by a fancy automated factory in China? Wrong. As the Tassled Flamestitch Scarf description says:
Add to your collection with a new design in our keepsake stockings, sure to become family heirlooms. A women’s collective in Bosnia creates these wonderful woolens, hand knit in flamestitch patterns, each signed by the woman who made it. Exclusive. Sizes may vary slightly, as each is individually knitted. Approx. 7"W x 21-1/2"L. Each stocking sells for $65.
What a steal! How much are these Bosnian artisans making on every stocking? Two bucks? Three? The real answer would be: not nearly enough.
The Sundance Catalog sells other handknits, such as this $68 sock monkey, handmade in Nepal.
Or these cute wool bottle sweaters, stitched by those hard-working Bosnian knitters, which sell for $35 each.
The very best handknitted item is an ethnic tree skirt, again handknitted by the Bosnians, which sells for a whopping $595.
At this price, I'd definitely make my own, but I'd knit all of these items before buying them, mostly because I can. For those who will never learn to knit, these make perfect gifts. But as Sundance has proved, there's no money in knitting. In my world, knitted gifts are always acts of love, never economics.
