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.
This is a great basket!
My three grandkids live with me, and I have been wanting to put some of their books in a basket to keep handy. None of the other baskets I have bought really fit the bill, but this one is perfect! Roomy, easy to get them in and out - it’s great! I am only slightly disappointed that I didn’t get any orange in the colors.
The most beautiful of all the baskets
These are so beautiful I had to buy 3! The colors are as amazing, they just pop. Each basket is a bit different in their color mixture. Very sturdy and heavy duty handles, they can work with just about anything from plant baskets to laundry to blanket baskets to whatever. Love them.
