MANUFACTURING

We are a Fair Trade Manufacturer

Starting in 2012, we are specialized in manufacturing products from waste materials.

In 2018, we additionally began to make our own handloom fabrics and products from recycled plastics.

Our manufactory is situated in the rural village Komari, on Sri Lanka's East coast.

 

All our products are handmade by women from rural areas, who have flourished into creative and skilled artisans. 

In 2020, we will open a new production hall for recycled plastic products. 

WE TRAIN WOMEN FROM RURAL VILLAGES TO BECOME SKILLED ARTISANS.

Waste Materials

RICE BAGS (PLASTIC)

Rice is Sri Lanka’s number one crop and often sold in big plastic bags on street markets. They are used only once, and then thrown away. We upcycle them into handbags and accessories.

SPICE SACKS (HESSIAN)

In Sri Lanka, many spices such as turmeric fingers are imported from India – often in hessian bags with colourful motives. Hessian is a woven fabric, usually made from skin of the jute plant.

RECYCLED PLASTICS

We collect PET bottles along the coast and transform them into new products. How? We melt the lids and mould them with an injection machine.

Textiles

HANDLOOM FABRICS

The handloom is a manually operated machine that was invented during ancient times. It has a long tradition in Sri Lanka. We work together with small family businesses and female weavers from rural areas.
