Ommm Tired Sleep Mask

Got a case of the yawns? Reach for your Ommm Tired Sleep Mask and enjoy the peace of a darkened sleepscape no matter where you are. Our tongue is in our cheek with this one, but in all seriousness, the third eye is the representation of spiritual knowledge and wisdom, the lotus flower the spiritual representation of resilience, as it roots in the murk and blooms above the water, and the chant Om is recognized in the Hindu tradition as the original vibration of the universe. By chanting Om, we can align our frequency with that of the original universal frequency, thus achieving higher spiritual existence. Too much to handle during a nap? Maybe not if your sleep mask gifts you with a little extra REM.

THE MAKERS

Saidpur Enterprises comprises two groups: Action Bag Handicrafts and Eastern Screen Printers. Its Action Bag subsidiary employs women artisans who make a variety of jute products. Some have husbands who are underemployed; others are widowed. Action Bag provides literacy classes, and training on nutrition, women's legal rights, educational awareness and finance. Following the 1971 war that established Bangladesh, Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) started clinics and nutrition centers in Saidpur to help address food shortages and disease. In 1976 MCC began a program to help mothers of malnourished children coming to its nutrition center. This temporary employment program became Action Bag Handicrafts, and now supports artisans selling for the fair trade export market.
