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.
Produced by Eastern Screen Printers, a Fair Trade producer group working 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.
Thank you for producing such an important publication.
The magazine is a secular publication. Readers, both Christian and non-Christian, may not always agree with all its conclusions. But it is an excellent catalyst for better informed thought and action. It pulls no punches yet at the same time is written with sensitivity and compassion ... could be of immense help in our becoming more globally aware and responsible citizens.
If you would like to know something about what's actually going on, rather than what people would like you to think was going on, then read the New Internationalist.
The New Internationalist magazine is not being screwed or manipulated by any dominant ideological group or any dominant corporate interest. Therefore the New Internationalist editorial is genuinely the New Internationalist editorial.
New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
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.
