Paper vase cover

This fun paper vase which is put around a discarded PET waterbottle is being made in Mumbai by the Tiny Miracle foundation.
The aim of the foundation is to get a slum of Mumbai out of poverty by 2020 by helping them to increase their income from less then an euro now to 8 euros a day in 2020.

Pepe designed also lamps and vases from leather, bamboo, steel which are all produced by the Tiny Miracle Foundation.

Lets hope many people buy the products to help them achieve the P of Profit sooner! We don’t usually promote sales at this website by you can buy them at Pepe’s shop
