How We Live

this is how we live: bringing home back into houses across the world through our products which are slowmade

  • we source from artisans who are experts in their respective fields (our artisans generally prefer to use their own hands and natural materials)

this is how we live: supporting communities across continents who are contributing to alleviating poverty

  • we source from Fairtrade and community projects, who are empowering local communities to earn a sustainable income (most of these projects involve empowering women through artisanal skills transfer)

this is how we live: giving back to our key cause women empowerment; a percentage of profit is sown into

Human Trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world valued at $34bn and is also the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. 80% of trafficked victims are girls between 5-15 years old, 50% are from Africa (our home town). the average life expectancy for a trafficked victim is 5 years and most are enslaved in the sex trade.

our partnership with Redlight includes practical help and a portion of profit sold from our current collection 'everyday treasure' will be donated to Redlight for their new skills empowerment programme for rescued trafficked victims.

Ray of Hope (ROH) is a non-profit organisation which seeks to provide a loving transition home for rescued babies and toddlers who have been infected or affected by HIV/Aids, abused, abandoned and neglected. we are aware that organisations such as ROH form the first rescue barrier to preventing human trafficking especially in light of the increase of child-headed households in South Africa due to HIV/Aids.
