    PRODUCTLINE.

    Wunderwerk, a sustainable fashion brand, offers a full line of women’s and men’s clothing that is supplemented in the winter season with accessories such as scarves and hats. The style can be described as stylish fashion basics with a luxurious look, combined with more distinct and contemporary silhouettes.

    THE MAKER.

    This German label was founded in 2012 by surf and ocean lovers Tim and Heiko. This is the reason why they do not want to use synthetic materials in their collection. The cool thing about Wunderwerk is that the founders live so consciously that they look for an attractive alternative for everything: for example, all items are delivered in protective covers made of biodegradable paper. This saves a huge amount of plastic on an annual basis!

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    Only 10 liters of water is used to make the Wunderwerk jeans, which can then be returned to nature completely clean!

    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!

    Jolien and Joachim from Studio Flash are real self-taught artists who exchanged their career as a sociologist and photographer for a more hands-on maker’s life. Everything just happens in their own house, between the soup, the fries and kids (literally because their desk is also the nursery). With their story of daring and doing they want to inspire others to also experience the manufacturability of the world.

    THE MAKER.

    The Studio Flash letterpress cards are made with age-old letterpress techniques in the garage of a family somewhere in a small town in Flanders. So right from the makers to you. The colors are mixed by hand and everything is printed with a very labor-intensive process, so that each card is a bit different from the rest. Your unique piece of art!

    WIST JE DAT…?

    Did you know that the Studio Flash cards can also be found in Alaska? A nice local shop contacted them via Instagram and since then a packet of letterpress cards has been sent to Alaska.

    PRODUCTLINE.

    Since January 1th 2018 FairForward has joined forces with Eco Collection, tuyu and Tilingo Nepra. The unique new organisation will be focusing on fair trade home decoration and gift products. The combined experience and knowledge of the four organizations offers a wide range of trendy fair trade and sustainable produced gifts & living products. They offer opportunities for development to it’s producers in Africa, Asia and Latin-America. Their working methods are the result of decades of experience in working with promising producers as well as having consumers who are looking for a beautiful product with a story to it. It’s their specialty to bring these two worlds together.

    THE MAKER.

    In production the producers will have had each product in their hands. For instance the basket weavers in Bangladesh who work at home and deliver their orders once a week. Or the employees of a ceramic factory in Thailand where the working conditions are fully alright. And the glass blowers in Bolivia who are happy to work at a factory where it’s safe and comfortable to work. The ways the producers work together is as diverse as the products they produce. The similarity is they all live and work in a developing country in Africa, Asia or Latin-America, fall within a disadvantaged position and the fact they are organized to improve their situation. Separately they have no or hardly any access to the (international) market for their products: cooperating increases their chances.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    all players in the trading chain endeavour to minimize the environmental impact of production and trade by the responsible use of natural resources and the responsible management of waste.

  • Kinta

    Kinta

    prod_img

    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.
