Eco-friendly materials

Nature is at the origin of our products. We aim to minimize a negative impact on our eco-system and use natural, organic, biodegradable, non-toxic and eco-friendly materials such as fast growing plants like seagrass, jute or bamboo. We have a strong focus on recycling and use materials that otherwise would be considered as waste such as reclaimed wood from houses, barns, boats and trucks, branch and root wood or recycled cotton. These materials are not only durable and eco conscious , they characterize the unique look & feel of our products. We love animals as much as we love our planet and do not use any fur, leather, wool, down or silk in the things we create nor will we make any references to it.

Craftsmanship

We are not in favour of cheap mass production but celebrate craftmanship and small scale production. Our products are skilfully handmade by artisans from Indonesia and Bangladesh. They are carefully crafted using traditional skills and traditional tools like the hand loom and spinning wheel Every items is individually crafted just for you.

Handmade from Bangladesh

100% original

The combination of individually handcrafted items of natural and eco-friendly materials and organic shapes causes small variations in size, shape and colour. We consider this part of the charm. Items may not be 100% perfect, but are 100% original, just like you!

Social

We focus on working with small producers and cottage industries. Small scale industry still exists in developing countries and supports the lifestyle and nature of local people in rural villages. We believe in working towards better distribution of wealth through small scale entrepreneurship. We focus on efficiently managing our supply chain to shorten steps from artisan to consumer and championing local entrepreneurs who work in a sustainable manner with rural communities in developing countries. We embed the fair trade principles of partnership, equality, transparency, fair prices and wages and safe working conditions. Of course child labour is prohibited. It is our goal to improve these circumstances but there is much room for improvement.
