Aura Que works closely with small producer groups in Nepal that are WFTO members to ensure healthy and safe work environments and payment of living wages. It also encourages trade for small Nepalese family businesses and charity handicraft units, aiming to slowly build long term relationships with these suppliers, under the same fair principles.
Simple, classic and unisex, the Ali pencil case is handcrafted from high quality leather at a small artisan workshop in Swayambhunath, Kathmandu, Nepal. Owner BJ produces the patterns himself, as well as making and coordinating the workshop production. Several members of staff are employed within the team, who they have trained in leatherwork skills. Aura Que has been working with the group since 2013.
The leather is sourced from a small family tannery in Kolkata and road-freighted to Kathmandu in bulk. All chemicals used in the process are contained and reprocessed within the water treatment facility on site.
The brass zip is handmade by artisans in Kathmandu who hand cut, file and polish local Nepalese brass into shape. Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, of historical and enduring importance because of its hardness and workability. Brass offers superior recyclability and overall environmental advantages as it can be recycled an infinite number of times with no loss in properties or performance.
Spot clean only. Comes with recyclable kraft card swing tag detailing the product's eco credentials.
Approximately 4cm wide x 20cm long x 5cm high.
