Turn your empty bottle into a vase
Empty bottles can literally be found anywhere in the world; from well-off and developed areas to impoverished city slums. And they can hold their water, making it an ideal vase. The only thing needed to make it look pretty is a beautiful cover. Our paper vase covers are hand folded by the women of Tiny Miracles. Their unique triangular paper design ensures easy assembly in under a minute.
Miracles from Mumbai
The Tiny Miracles Foundation is a Netherlands-based charity founded in 2010 by Laurien Meuter and her cousin designer Pepe Heykoop. The foundation focuses its efforts on eliminating poverty in one of the most impoverished city areas of Mumbai, India: the Pardeshi community in slums bordering on the red light district.
Our key ambition was to help this small community of 700 people become self-supporting in 10 years time. We are well on our way. By the year 2020 they will be middle class citizens.
Over the last 5 years we have created a successful working business model that has acquired the expertise to fulfill our future mission: breaking the cycle of poverty in any community around the world.
Even in the slums it’s possible to create beautiful and innovative designs that are functional in many ways. Striving to make the best social design products is the reason we got into business in the first place.
By creating this product, we are able to expand our mission.
Social means at a fair price. That’s indeed more than average, but we are nothing like average. We strive to be part of the solution to create a more equal world. Improve the well-being of people and generations to come.
