It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, and the high street is filling up with plastic decorations, wrapping paper that can't be recycled, and toys that will be used once and discarded.
But there is a better way to do Christmas. This year we're delighted to welcome back Honest - Love Our Planet whose collection of baubles and decorations are all handmade from recycled paper pulp, and carefully hand painted with plant-based colours, making them biodegradable.
Honest are focused on preserving the traditional artisan crafts of Kashmir, and at the same time empowering women by providing fair trade jobs for them.
Their paper mâché baubles are made by a team of skilled artisans using a traditional technique that involves mixing paper pulp with water, which is shaped on a clay mould and dried, then cut and glued together. The surface is then smoothed and painted.
Each bauble is a masterpiece, finished with attention to detail and skill, and they make fantastic gifts. We have a huge variety of designs in store. If you would like to order online we will contact you to show you the available selection so you can decide. Trust us, it’s very hard!
