A large, wonderfully thick and robust brush doormat, featuring a burgundy-coloured inset dove motif. Made from tough natural coir (coconut husk fibre) by the Shertallai Co-operative in Kerala, India.
Please note, the Dove Doormat is only available for delivery to Australian addresses, and via normal post, not express.
The Shertallai Coir Co-operative was the first co-operative society to be founded in Kerala, southern India.
I think the mat is really lovely and has given my front porch a touch of class! So now I want to improve my back porch. And I am giving one to a son who recently purchased his first very modest home and was admiring my mat.
The New Internationalist magazine has won the Paul Hoffman Prize, awarded for NI's outstanding contribution to world development.
The Independent Press Awards are selected by the editors of Utne Reader magazine to 'honour independent efforts that provide bold, innovative, thought-provoking alternatives to mass media fare.' The New Internationalist magazine won the inaugural 1989 award for International Coverage.
Since then, the magazine has won the award for 'Best International Coverage' another eight times, most recently in 2013. In the year 2000 the New Internationalist also won the highly valued readers' poll.
People these days almost crave information that helps them to make sense of the world, and the New Internationalist magazine does that brilliantly.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like The Chetna Organic Cotton Project. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about The Chetna Organic Cotton Project: Say NO to pesticides that poison three million people every year, and help make trade fairer at the same time.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
