Buttons, safety pins, coins, keys, ‘I’ll fix that bit back on later’ bits … This aluminium box is a great place to keep all the flotsam and jetsam that every day life just seems to accumulate. It is a pretty burnished box that is handmade from wood, covered with die-cut and pressed metal and features a cross-legged Buddha. It is hand-finished with a lovely catch, black velvet lining and non-slip feet. The supplier is a buying agent based in Delhi and the USA, and sources handmade products from local artisans in India. Eight people work in the office there and receive statutory wages, plus wage rises twice a year and a health insurance card. Within their local community the company fund school equipment for seven hundred children and provide ten cash prizes awarded for the ten best achieving students, once a year on India Day. Their generosity and philanthropy shone through recently when a terrible earthquake struck in Nepal. They were first in line providing much needed practical help by sending food and solar cookers, so that people could cook food and sterilise water. The supplier says "We are blessed to have such a team that runs the company in a 100% professional way, we hope and dream we can continue with honesty and integrity”. De-clutter in the most delightful way.
