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.
I'm stimulated, excited, saddened and engaged by the people who write for the magazine. Keep up the great and important work.
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
I've always been profoundly impressed by the quality of its research and its writing and how readily accessible it makes otherwise complex world affairs. Each of its ten annual editions is a short course in something profound.
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.
