Handmade Greeting Cards

These handmade greeting cards help to improve the lives of some of the poorest people on this planet - young adults who have been orphaned by disease, or even worse, genocide or conflict.

Every single card is lovingly hand crafted by one such young person in Rwanda who also signs their name at the back of the card.

This project gives them a respectable start in life and helps them on their way to economic independence.

Each handmade card incorporates handmade paper made from local office waste which gives them their green credentials.

This is a handmade product so there might be slight variations in colour or finish.

Ethiqana is starting an artisanal revival in the world of children’s toys and other homewares and accessories.

This social enterprise works with small artisan producers, known as Ethiqana’s Artisan Heroes, carefully selected based on the eco-friendliness of their methods and the need for creative and economic empowerment. 

These include the famous toymakers of Channapatna, India, who create colourful, tactile and durable wooden toys following fair trade values. These toys are 100% natural, handmade from sustainably grown wood and coloured with natural non-toxic dyes from plant-based sources. 

A huge part of Ethiqana’s mission is to preserve traditional, nearly-extinct art and craft techniques. Many of the toys are made using methods passed down through generations of artisans over the course of 200 years. 

By preserving these traditional techniques, Ethiqana challenges modern manufacturing methods and provides sustainable livelihoods to the artisans.

They also strive to give their Artisan Heroes opportunities to travel and connect with a worldwide audience. This helps makers evolve their art and practices, which is key to preserving them for the future.
