Tundra Recycled Bottle Throw

Crafted from recycled bottles! Artisans with Asha handicrafts in India use PET yarn (made from recycled plastic bottles) to weave this herringbone patterned throw blanket. The Tundra Recycled Bottle Throw is as cozy as it is eco-friendly, making it a great sofa companion or a much-appreciated ethical gift. This charcoal color is exclusive to Ten Thousand Villages.

HANDCRAFTED IN INDIA

  • 100% PET plastic (and still oh–so–cozy)
  • Cool wash, line dry, tumble to fluff. Do not iron.
  • Due to the handcrafted nature of our products, expect variations in the weave.
  • 60"Lx50"W
  • Additional 3" of fringe
  • Handcrafted in India

THE MAKERS

A fair trade organization, Asha represents more than 6,500 artisans in 10 states of India. The association’s name, meaning "hope" in Sanskrit, represents its goal to sustain the marketing ability of individual and family–based artisans. A not–for–profit organization, Asha works to ensure that benefits of handicraft production reach the craftspeople themselves. Asha promotes sustainability and helps eliminate producer debt through direct purchases and advance payments. Producer benefits include educational assistance for children, medical checkups and treatment, a health center at Saharanpur, savings programs for artisans and spouses, nonformal education projects and relief–related social projects. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Asha since 1976.
