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.
Heavy duty straws
Love them. I have plastic ones but they warp in the dishwasher. These are awesome and fit in the slot of my Yeti.
I really like these straws. I have had acrylic reusable straws, but these are my first metal. I wasn’t sure about them having a bend, but so far they have worked well with whatever glass I have used them with. Nice balance. One thing to note: a metal straw gets MUCH colder than an acrylic straw!
Good value for money! Straws are just as seen in the picture. They are also good sized and not too small.
