Handmade Vases, Bowls and Christmas Decorations
About the Products
They look like they are made from stone; however, they are really made from recycled newspaper, water and soil before being baked in the African sun.
Depending on the mixture of these ingredients, the texture and the colour differs. Even the intensity of the sun influences this.
The use of soil, charcoal and natural food dyes gives the products their beautiful natural colours.
About the Supplier
This project is a creative collaboration between young Kenyans and a European visionary who trained employees in how to make the products.
The project promotes fair trade practises, recycling and social empowerment.
It has been so successful in training its employees that ownership was transferred to a Kenya woman, who now oversees all production, marketing and sales.
