Wire bicycle bookends from India measuring approximately 7" high x 4" long 2-1/2" wide. These playful bookends are perfect for the bike enthusiast. Made in India from recycled wire, the cooperative offers funding for raw materials, machines and workshop repairs to 100 artisan groups from all over the country. In exchange for assistance, workshops must prove that all employees are paid fair wages for their products and work in safe and clean conditions. They also offer free classes in capacity building to their network of 600 artisans, a rigorous quality control check, and run 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.
