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.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.
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 is the most brilliant advocate on behalf of the developing world. It's a source of information; it's a source of reassurance on ideas; and it has an enormous integrity.
A little about Baladarshan: Baladarshan is a Fair Trade Organisation marketing the products of Chennai slum women working through the SPEED foundation.
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.
