We're currently enjoying Hay Bike Fest here in Hay on Wye, though to be fair I don't envy them the weather at the moment. It's a great chance for people to see the stunning scenery around the area, and also to meet other enthusiasts from up and down the country.
We've been getting in on the bike theme with a new delivery of our ever-popular accessories made from recycled inner tubes! These are made in Cambodia by our friends at Craftworks Cambodia, who also make our incredible Hope & Peace jewellery.
Online we have clasp wallets and laptop sleeves made from this versatile, hard wearing and eco friendly material. Whether your on two wheels or not, they make great gifts.
We’re delighted to be the first UK stockists of Craftworks
Cambodia’s products. They’re an innovative group who produce bags and
accessories from recycled sacks and inner tubes, and jewellery made from bomb
casings and bullets recovered from the war in the 1970s. Pretty amazing stuff! We've been chatting regularly by email and getting a real insight into the group. They’ve sent us
information and photos of the individual artisans, many of whom are suffering with HIV/AIDS or disabilities due to mines.
We’ve just received our first instalment of jewellery which is now available here.
Unfortunately the artisan who produces the jewellery is currently unwell, but
he should be back on his feet soon and we’ll have some additions to the range.
Hope you like their products and, remember, every purchase goes towards helping these talented
people live a more comfortable and sustainable life.
