African Dolls

These activity dolls are not dolls for play, but rather collector dolls that reflect the different jobs undertaken by women in Ghana. They illustrate the traditional roll of women as they perform their day to day activities.

These lovely active ladies have come to our office on their way to the UK!

Recycled glass buttons

The production of recycled buttons is not as simple as one might expect. All buttons undergo a rigorous selection process, and a lot are rejected. During this process the artisan has to exhibit a lot of skill, they carefully, and quickly insert two holes while the glass button is still very hot. An inability to perforate the buttons correctly will results in cracks.

When done correctly, the final result is an extremely
exquisiteglass bead. Delighted, our customer was really
happy with the manual effort put into the whole production process. From broken glass to colourful beads!!

But wait! There is more! Out of the rejected buttons comes a new creation…
button and bead necklaces!! Isn’t that great!!
