Bespoke Printing | Hand Crafted Crackers

MINDFUL

SUSTAINABILITY

We are mindful and conscientous of others, and of our environment.

In the making and printing of our products we are committed to involving as many artisans  and other community minded businesses from within Kenya and East Africa.

We strive " to keep work within our communities", as they strive towards finding financial security.

We act ethically, with integrity and transparency in all of our business dealings.

We also endeavor to safeguard our employees and  artisans we deal with against any form of modern day slavery or bribery.

 

 

 

UP-CYCLE  AND RE-USE

We encourage all the artisans we work with to up-cycle.

Many of our unique hand crafted gifts are made from plastic bottles, tins,  metal caps and beads.

Curling ribbons are up-cycled and woven into amazing woven accessories and bags.

Old newspapers are collected and made into unique shopping bags for our crackers. Material off cuts are re- cut into colourful ribbons and bag handles.

 

 

 

NEWSPAPER BAGS

PLASTICS

We avoid unnecessary single use plastics in our gifts and packaging.

Any plastic elements used are chosen with care so that all can be re-used, and up-cycled!

In 2021 we are setting up a new initiative to collect beads from old and discarded items.

We will collect, sort, clean and up-cycle for use in the cracker gifts.
