A little 80s punk rock and totally rad on so many levels, I think you’ll really like your new wallet and business card holder that comes packed with good karma. I’ve been rocking my own pink and black set since I picked them up from this social enterprise store in Yangon. The business card holders keep the cards crisp. Both are great conversation starters. I only picked up a couple pieces this trip to gauge interest, but I really, really want to support the work of this social enterprise store and this group of artisans in particular, so please reach out if you like what you see so I can work on getting more of this for LM. They also make totes and larger bags too!

About Hla Day: organized around fair trade principles, this social enterprise organization works with over 50 different producer groups. Anyone can walk in with a craft design and they will help them refine it and bring it to market. The store aims to avoid competing with traditional craftsmen, and so offers traditional crafts with a modern twist. They also believe that recycled products are the future!

About this producer, Chu Chu Plastics: Chu Chu “refers to the sound that plastic makes when working with the material. The expanding cooperative of men, women and their families aim to raise awareness on the importance of recycling and reusing mateirals into new items as a means for improving people’s lives and the environment.
