    PRODUCTLINE.

    Kinta, a fairtrade interior brand, manages to develop new interior items every season in collaboration with the local population in Africa and Asia. Two product lines in the spotlight: Acacia wood is a non-native type of hardwood that is common in the Philippines. It is beautiful wood with a warm color, and it is sustainable: the trees grow quickly and a new tree is planted for every tree that has been harvested. Capiz is a flat, oyster-like shell that occurs in large quantities in the waters around the Philippine islands. The shell lets in a lot of light. This makes Capiz an ideal basic material for the artistic collection of handmade lamps, photo frames, jewelry and other home accessories.

    THE MAKER.

    Kinta is a Dutch importer of interior decorations from Africa and the Philippines. This involves much more than “one-sided” trade. The Kinta collection is the result of a unique symbiosis of local products and western designs. All items are manufactured in a sustainable manner, with a great eye for natural materials and the local situation.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    In the Spanish colonial era the Capiz shells were mainly used for windows in houses due to their light-transmitting nature.

  • Seepje

    Seepje

    prod_img

    PRODUCTLINE.

    This 100% organic, plant based and fair trade detergent comes from Nepal. The peels of the Sapindus mukorossi fruit contain a natural form of soap. This has been known to the local population for thousands of years, and since a few years also in the Netherlands! The peels have a neutral odor. You can choose to add the essential oil for a nice scented, fresh wash. The peels are organically harvested from the trees. Both these peels and the laundry bags are imported in a responsible manner.

    THE MAKER.

    After watching a documentary about Nepalese women doing the laundry and washing themselves with the Sapindus mukorossi fruit, the two students from The Hague, Jasper and Melvin, decided to make a biological detergent and named it Seepje. With this detergent they reached the finals of the Student Entrepreneur Prize.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    The fifteen ‘Waskanjers’ from Seepje have an intellectual and / or physical disability; with a big smile they pack all the peel packaging every day and process the orders!
