    These fairtrade baskets come from the village of Mekhe village and are made by Adama Diop, her daughters and daughters-in-law. Adama was born in 1943. She started making the baskets some 50 years ago. The baskets have been made for generations and it is a real family business. This is how Adama learned the trade from her mother. She has six daughters who all help with this work.

    BEHIND THE MAKER.

    The baskets are made from dried reed stalks from the Ngaye area. The reed stems are wrapped with colored waste plastic and are thus sewn together. This creates beautiful color patterns.

    DID YOU KNOW…?

    Adama takes a week over a big basket. She can make a total of around 50 baskets per order. She then has help from about 15 family members. If the assignment is even larger, it engages other families.

    HURRAW

    prod_img

    PRODUCTLINE.

    Fun fact, did you know that women on average eat an entire lipstick each year accidentally simply by wearing it? Most lipsticks contain a lot of chemical ingredients. In other words, you put a lot of chemicals on your skin and thus also into your body by simply wearing lipstick. Hurraw is a beauty brand that makes lip balms completely made from organic, vegan and raw ingredients. So no toxins on your skin and no toxins that can enter your body. They ship in recycled and recyclable corrugated packaging and use 100% recycled post consumer paper for void fill. They hope to reduce their plastic use by 90% in the next five years. Their hope is that PCR material becomes easily attainable for all manufacturers that rely on plastics and that alternative plastic material and technology continues to be developed.

    THE MAKER.

    Over the past decade, they have learned that making truly natural cosmetics is hard work! The majority of cosmetic brands are contract manufactured akin to the fashion industry. ‘New’ (recycled) lip colors, trendy anti-aging claims with the same old formulas and fancy plastic packaging are marketed as must haves every season. Truly natural cosmetics just can not run on the cosmetic industry hamster wheel. Many excellent cosmetic products can be manufactured with just a handful of pure, non-processed plant-based ingredients. But Hurraw must be realistic in their limits. They are after all, like food.

    DID YOU KNOW..?

    There is potential for anything you put on your skin – especially your lips – to be absorbed into your incredible body.  So choose wisely and seek ingredient knowledge.

    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!
