Welcoming all GreenHeart Friends to the new site!
Who made this product? The dish was made by artisans in Cameroon employed by Prescraft. Potters in the village of Bamessing sculpt each earthenware piece on a wheel, trim it by hand, and glaze and fire the final products in woodburning kilns.
Why is it ethical? The dish is crafted by Prescraft who is committed to ecological and economic justice, and runs a reforestation program with local farms, provides opportunities for professional development, and actively works to create jobs in rural villages, minimizing the need for villagers to leave their families and migrate to urban areas to find work.
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.
