Hello! My name is Jose de Goeij and this is my shop.
Some years ago, I moved to Thailand with my husband for his work. And during this time, we have travelled all over South East Asia.
Having always been busy with interior design, I have looked for special gift products not normally found in Europe.
One of the first collections I am offering here on my webshop is a collection of recycled products that have been created by underprivileged women from recycled sacks. The colourful sacks have been used to contain rice, cement or fish food.
Through microfinancing, many of these underprivileged women get an opportunity to buy a sewing machine with which they make the products you see here on my shop. This has given them the opportunity to support themselves and their families.
We are constantly adding to our products and have recently added a line of Burmese shoppers which are hand woven from packing tape by local farmers in Burma (Myanmar). These incredibly sturdy bags are usually only made in in the rainy season when the farmers cannot work in the fields and are an alternative means of income,
I have now returned to the Netherlands permanently but still travel at least once a year back to South East Asia to ensure the quality of our products from our suppliers.
Hope you like our product collections. Be sure to let me know if you are searching for something special. We now have a network of contacts in Asia who continue to search out new items for us.
