THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Noah's Ark
Moradabad, India in 1986 was a place where the concept of Fair Trade did not exist, and where Mr. Samuel Masih noticed that most exporters were exploiting their artisans. An energetic local businessman with a heart for his people, Samuel established the organization not only to promote and support artisans, but also to invest profits in their social and economic development.
Noah’s Ark runs three schools, provides the families of their 700 artisans free health care and access to clean water, and has facilitated the building of 22 independent workshops. While Samuel admits that sometimes he feels like slowing down, knowing that he has hundreds of people behind him keeps him going.
The cup was made by Dilshad Hussain and his group of stainless steel artisans situated just outside Moradabad. Dilshad deals exclusively with Noah’s Ark, and the organization recently donated a dye press machine to his workshop.
I was a little disappointed by the size. I was buying this as a substitute tree topper to replace a missing angel for our mini Christmas tree. Despite it being too small it is still really pretty and will go well with a table display I have.
Beautifully constructed mosaic angel
Even though Christmas has passed, I keep my mosaic angel displayed, because it is so beautiful! A reminder that we are surrounded by goodness.
I bought two silver and one gold, in small size, now wish I had purchased a bigger one!
