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.
The Education Web Guide team were particularly impressed by the quality and educational content (of the New Internationalist magazine)
New Internationalist is an ongoing education and a monthly reminder of our common humanity. A wonderful readable guide to the social and political forces that shape our world...With its hard-hitting coverage of world affairs, evocative first-person essays, sweeping exposes of such topics as land mines and the geopolitics of blue jeans, the New Internationalist offers a consistently unique and important perspective on global culture.
I am eager not to miss a single issue of your always informative and thought-provoking publication.
New Internationalist is a magazine well worth reading as it respects the intelligence of its readers. It is independent, lively and properly provocative, helping to keep its readers abreast of important developments in parts of our globe that risk marginalisation. Read it!.
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.
