Description
What comes around, goes around. Upcycled magazine paper coaster in blue tones.

Adapted from a traditional basket-making technique, items like these are made from recycled misprinted magazines. Artisans form the paper into flat strips, dip them into a latex glue mixture and hang them to dry. After this the strips are coiled into patterns and shapes such as this funky coaster.

Producer

Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts

Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts was founded in 1991 by a small group of social workers in the efforts to help poor and neglected children who could not afford to attend school in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Mai provided work for the youths and encouraged them to attend the informal literacy classes which the organisation offered. Nowadays, school is free to all Vietnamese children, so Mai now provides work for the mothers and older sisters of these children, boosting the family income, independence and overall well-being.
