Artisans of Noah's Ark in Moradabad, India collect each individual iron ring from local repair shops, hand-welding each of the nearly 1,000 connection points. Noah's Ark provides jobs and stability where few employment opportunities exist -- offering local artisans the freedom to live independently.

July 20, 2013 - This is so beautiful! It goes perfect in my dining room with my brown linens but also goes great with my patio furniture! I bought the large, it is sturdy enough so I plan to use it as a fruit bowl! My only regret is not buying more. I love it! JP

Artisan: One World Projects - Anwar Saleem

Artisan One World Projects - Anwar Saleem

Their mission is spelled out in their name: One World Projects brings together isolated communities of artisans with an appreciative buying public, to support a fair trade, ecological, sustainable, and impressive business model. Since 1992, their network has branched out to support and encompass more than 11,000 artisans across the globe, allowing their handcrafted and fairly traded creations to find far-away markets.

Artisans like Anwar Saleem from the Indian cooperative Noah's Ark, work in recycled metals to craft items which are perfect for use indoors or out in the garden or patio. Not only does the factory-discarded metal find a beautiful new purpose, these items enable One World Projects' network of 600 artisans to support their families and whole communities. Anwar is a second-generation lamp-maker whose parents died when he was only 18, leaving him responsible for three younger siblings. Working with his uncle, he learned the craft of lacquering lanterns but was unable to make a living wage until he found employment with Noah's Ark. The fair wages he received turned his family's lives around.

One World Projects' slogan "uniting the world through compassionate trade" is the guiding force in their mission to create viable economic alternatives for artisans and expand the reaches of ethical and fair trade to address the most pressing humanitarian issues that face mankind today.
