Welcoming all GreenHeart Friends to the new site!
These fair trade alpaca throws were made in Peru through Allpa. These beautiful throws are composed of alpaca fibers creating a truly soft, luxurious and amazingly warm throw blanket.
Who made this product? Begun in 1986 in Lima, Peru, the founders of Allpa envisioned an organization dedicated to finding artisans and sharing their talents with the world.
Why is it ethical? Sobremesa by Greenheart works directly with the artisans to ensure fair trade principles are upheld. Their artisans hand weave and hand crotchet alpaca, sheared with no harm to the animal. The blended throws they produce are lighter and warmer than wool. Allpa focuses on improving the lives of artisans and their homes by investing in cooperative workshops that revitalize communities across Peru.
TerraKlay is bringing a wide range of functional designs in stoneware pottery created by craftsmen and craftswomen from south India's village community.
These products were born from the idea to create a platform where the villagers could live and work in their village and learn a new skill instead needing to migrate to bigger cities. This led to the creation of a range of "eco-friendly products" wheel-thrown by village craftsmen. All stoneware cups are fair trade and show the beauty of their handmade artistry.
