Nkuku works with independent artisans, social projects and small co-operatives while adhering to the globally recognized 10 Principles Of Fair Trade. This allows them to provide their artisans with a sustainable above-average income, in turn bringing economic and social development to their communities. Many of Nkuku's products are consciously handmade from reclaimed and recycled materials. In fact, they gather waste leftover from other industries including cotton from discarded t-shirts, leather, metals and glass as well as recycled saris.
The relationship between an artisan and his/her handmade goods imbues those items with a story. This makes each product not a mass market item, but an individually crafted heirloom with a unique character all its own. The ancient skills used by Fair Trade suppliers have been handed down from generation to generation, and your purchase helps keep that tradition and culture alive.
Please note: due to the handcrafted and recycled nature of these candlestick holders, slight variations in size, shape, finish, grain & texture may occur, lending to each piece’s unique character.
