These quirky, chunky bookends made from recycled bike chains make a great gift for any keen cyclist. They are also nice and heavy, so will support a good number of books.
They are made by Noah's Ark a fair trade organisation in Moradabad, Northen India, which started in 1986 because of the exploitation of poor artisans in the region - it now supports over 500 artisans. The recycled bicycle parts used have been salvaged from repair shops as they are broken or no longer fit the bikes coming into the shop.
