Gunde Heart Box

What treasures will you keep in your Gunde Heart Box? Eye mask and ear plugs on the bedside table. Collected gems or rocks on a shelf. Jewelry in the cupboard, maybe even recipe cards. You decide. The two stylized hearts are intricately hand-carved along the box's top. Ethically handcrafted in small batches of fast-growing mango wood by artisans in India working with Noah's Ark International Exports.

THE MAKERS

Noah's Ark International Exports is a fair trade handicraft marketing organization in Moradabad, India. Noah's Ark provides benefits such as education and medical treatment for artisans and their families. As artisan businesses become more self-sufficient, Noah's Ark takes on new families. Since the company's inception, about 20 artisan workshops have become independent. Noah's Ark started in 1986, in one room of a family house in Moradabad. Businessman Samuel Masih observed that exporters and middlemen were taking advantage of handicraft artisans. He started Noah's Ark to promote these artisans and their crafts.
