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.
Appreciate your attention to detail and as always regard NI as one of the best sources of info on social-welfare, justice and environmental issues on a global scale. Keeps it all in perspective, which becomes increasingly harder to do in the info-overload age!
Subscribe to this fantastic journal. It's the only media organisation that I really trust nowadays!

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.
