Product Description

Sandstone shell bookends from Indonesia measuring approximately 4-1/4" high x 3-1/2" long 3" wide. These simply carved bookends add a highlight of the ocean that would suit well into any decor. They are made by the artisans of a a loosely organized cooperative that represents artisans who make wood, silver, bamboo, coconut, ceramic and other handicrafts. Located on the island of Bali, this organization was formed in 1993 to support poor artisans facing ruin because well-established businesses controlled prices and monopolized the burgeoning Bali tourism market. The cooperative only works with producers who support gender equity, provide healthy working conditions, use environmentally sustainable materials, and do not exploit child labor or women. During periods of low orders, they offer the artisans no-interest loans and the loaning of cows. In addition, they support a reforestation program, an environmental initiative, as well as an effort to prevent artisans from selling their land.
