yves and i moved into our new home in the end of november, and haven't had internet until yesterday. today is my first day off work while yves is recording during the day, so in the meantime i am just cleaning up and enjoying the new space we have, listening to olafur arnalds' living room songs.
These fair trade brass bracelets are handmade by silversmith Raju from Nepal. They are made from brass, and engraved with the text 'home is where your heart is' in my grandmother's handwriting. Raju is connected to a fair trade company, which will invest the profits in their schooling programs, small orphanage, day care and workplace in Patan, Nepal.
Every bracelet comes in a handmade and letter pressed box, made from non dyed Lokta paper. The Lokta paper itself, is also made by hand in the same little factory in Bhaktapur, Nepal.
They are now for sale on my webstore
A special gift for your loved ones these holidays!
