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 magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.
I am eager not to miss a single issue of your always informative and thought-provoking publication.

A little about Asha Handicrafts: Asha Handicrafts provides the security of markets to small scale artisan workshops around India, like ANSA, the soapnut harvesters in Tamil Nadu.
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.
