100% cotton throwing discs, similar to the plastic ones you know, but better! The difference is that you can stuff your Pocket Disc in your back pocket and take it with you everywhere. And when it hits you (or someone else) in the face, it doesn't hurt!
Not that that'll be a problem for long - even relative novices can get these to fly well for up to 50 metres, and even on windy days.
Colourfast and robust, they're great for competitions or social games, on land, in the pool or the surf.
Made by a fair trade women's cooperative in Guatemala. The Mayas of Guatemala have been weaving and crocheting bright patterns for centuries and bring a deep cultural talent for handwork to the Pocket Discs. Each village specializes in a few patterns, passed down with the generations, so colours and designs vary.
Care and Maintenance
As a general rule Pocket Discs prefer hand-washing over washing machines. Though they can handle a machine, they can get a bit bent out of shape. But, don't worry. If your Pocket Disc gets at all wrinkled, bent out of shape or scruffy it has no noticeable impact on its flight.

Look at that keep-away game we just played. If we had been using Frisbees¬Æ, there would have been 10 kids hurt before we were done.
When it hits me in the mouth, my lips don't get caught up in my braces!
This is exactly what the world needs right now!

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.
