When we discovered these stunning hand woven jute totes - we knew that we had to have them in our shop, not only for their looks, but because of the cause they support.

The company was formed after it's owner spent years as an aid worker in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Whilst there, and witnessing young children hand rolling hundreds of cigarettes for only 20p per day, Her vision was to empower the mothers of such children, teaching them crafts and allowing them to secure an income through the production of handicrafts
As a company they believe that fair trade can act as an important bridge between worlds, fostering a better understanding between both ends of the supply-chain, the customer and the producer. The products are all hand made and blend traditional artisanal skills with contemporary design.
