A charming set of bookends to encourage reading - and tidying!
This set of hand painted bookends would surely inspire an interest in reading as well as providing a special decorative place to store favourite books. The design is of an enchanted forest, with a unicorn, a squirrel, a rabbit and a deer against a backdrop of trees with owls and doves.
They are made in Sri Lanka from responsibly sourced rubber wood which is obtained from trees originally planted to produce latex and which are no longer in production. The wood is then cleared - and can be used for items such as these bookends - and replanted for further latex production.
The artisans who make these bookends are employed according to fair trade criteria and benefit from fair wages, skills development, respectful working relationships and good working conditions. The company has developed an educational foundation providing disadvantaged rural schools in Sri Lanka with books and daily milk to facilitate better learning for all the students.
