Natural white silk paper, hand-blockprinted with an intricate floral design by artisans in Bangladesh. A great way to wrap gifts and show you care.
The silk paper-making process produces a distinctive paper that's semi-translucent, yet tough enough to re-use several times.
Available in single sheets of red or blue, or as a set of two - one of each colour.
Produced by Eastern Screen Printers, a Fair Trade producer group workjing with Saidpur Enterprises.
Action Bags, born from a Mennonite aid project after the 1971 war in Bangladesh, now employs hundreds of women making fair trade jute products.
For many years I have read the New Internationalist magazine with great respect. Many an article I have written, and film I have made, have had their roots in something I read in the NI.
I want to congratulate you on the fantastic job you do with New Internationalist Australia. New Internationalist is about the only remaining forum of journalistic integrity and genuine humanity that is commonly available in Australia. I'm also very impressed with your New Internationalist shop. The products are fantastic and speak of the quality and dedication of their manufacturers. The stories attached to the products are very inspiring and uplifting. Please keep up the great work.
The New Internationalist magazine has won the Media Peace Prize, awarded for an outstanding contribution to world peace and development.
I have enjoyed reading your magazine since I was 14 years old when I discovered it in my school library. I'm now 32 and the magazine still delivers.
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.
