APRON MADE FROM WASTE COTTON

SUPPORTS A SOCIAL CAUSE Many people in the rural areas of Bangladesh suffer from unemployment and poverty. They migrate to the overpopulated capital Dhaka, trying to find work to feed their families. Most end up in the slums without any perspective on a better future. The workshop that makes the aprons, is founded in the rural area of northern Bangladesh to create job opportunities for these marginalized people. The workshop is modest but safe, people are treated equally and are paid fair wages. All textile is produced by hand to create as much jobs as possible. The project is fair trade certified according to EKOTA Bangladesh.

CUTTING BOARD MADE FROM WASTE WOOD

SUPPORTS A SOCIAL CAUSE Many people in the rural areas of Java benefit from teak root; local farmers who dig out the enormous roots, villagers who transport the roots to the craftsman, the craftsmen who turn the root into something useful and the local women who collect the wood shavings for a fire to cook on. All waste wood kitchenware is handcrafted by a small design organisation that support the local community by creating jobs in this remote and rural area.
