Noahs's Ark Artisan Story

Khalil Ahmed Shows Off Some of his Metal WorkThis item was handmade in India in a workshop sponsored by Noah’s Ark, an NGO that offers funding for raw materials, machines and workshop repairs to 100 artisan groups across India. In exchange for assistance, workshops must prove that all employees are paid fair wages for their products and work in safe and clean conditions. Noah's Ark also offers free classes in capacity building to its network of 600 artisans, a rigorous quality control check, and runs education and water sanitation projects to benefit the artisans’ children and the rest of the community. The company has established 20 new workshops in the past 15 years, and all employees are paid 10-15% above the local rate.

Scorpion Junkyard Critter

Keeping scorpions as pets is becoming increasingly popular. They are relatively inexpensive to buy and require very little maintenance or care. At last count 1,752 different species of scorpions have been identified; make that 1,753 including this junkyard scorpion.

This cute critter is the product of the imagination and ingenuity of a Vietnamese engineer-turned-artisan. Working from his home-based workshop, he transforms salvaged metal scraps into into wonderful home decor and smart office/desk accessories. Over the years, demand for his creations have continued to grow. The success that began in his small workshop has now expanded beyond the borders of Vietnam to support artisans in India as well. It is a wonderful success story and a truly global fair trade product. Besides making a great gift for dads, curio collectors, and animal lovers, each whimsical style proves that to recycle is a beautiful thing. Recycling is good!!
