Waste not, want not, we say! India's primary form of transport is the humble push bike, and bike repair shops are found everywhere, along with mountains of old, unused and broken bike chains. One of Oxfam's most popular products, this bike chain bowl was the brainchild of an inspired metal worker from Noah's Ark Moradabad workshop who has ingeniously transformed these discarded bike chains into a cool piece of home decor. Hand soldered, the bowl is formed into shape and then electroplated to a modern chrome finish making it a fun and funky piece for your home. When you buy one, you're helping to ensure good healthcare, education and housing for Noah's Ark artisans and their families.
Made from: Recycled Bike Chains

Noah’s Ark began as a single-room workshop in a family home in Moradabad, in northern India, and has grown into a thriving fair-trade marketing organisation, working with approximately 40 artisan groups and more than 300 artisans across India.
The organisation was created by Samuel Masih in 1986, in a bid to help artisans become more self-sustainable and less vulnerable to exploitation by middlemen and exporters. Noah’s Ark encourages and values traditional skills and artistry, ensuring artisans and entrepreneurs receive a fair price for their work.
