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.
No more “assorted colors” for me
This basket is well made and is a nice size, but I was very disappointed in the colors. I absolutely love the colors in the basket pictured on the GlobeIn site, and am not very happy with the colors I received. It is a good lesson to me - I have to stop buying things that come in assorted colors. So far I am 3 for 3 in disappointment over the item I received.
That said, if they are your colors, then the basket is great. I am recommending this product despite my disappointment because it IS well made, and others would love my basket. I am just sad that I don’t.
Love this basket and the colors. Well made and brightens any room!
