Beautifully handmade West African gifts and decorations, all for charity.
The Paul Hodges Trust offers vibrant and gorgeously printed ethical gifts, decorations, hampers and homeware for your Christmas present-shopping.
A Bath-founded and based grant-giving charity, their mission is to support women and girls in West Africa (currently Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania and Sierra Leone).
They support grassroots community projects and local experts to create impactful and sustainable improvements to issues such as girls’ education, child marriage, gender inequality, vocational training, stable employment, FGM, poverty, essential food provisions, and COVID-19 prevention and protection.
All items are lovingly handcrafted by all-women and women-led centres of excellence in West Africa, with all proceeds going to charity and towards a dependably fair wage.
For every face mask purchased, The Paul Hodges Trust pledge to donate three more to vulnerable communities hit by coronavirus. All materials are sustainably sourced from local markets or from recycled materials.
Their luxury, mulberry silk, double-sided and anti-ageing face masks are stitched from premium offcuts generously donated from a high-end silk pillowcase designer who supports their cause.
‘The Ultimate’ is a pure silk mask with hydrophobic, breathable, anti-microbial and anti-viral properties, plus can be rewashed again and again. 25 momme, charmeuse, and pure mulberry, the reversible masks are available in scarlet, black or ivory.
The charity’s hamper selections are also thoughtful, ethical, and the gift you’ll want to be giving this year, packed full of treats like Fairtrade tea and chocolate. Their African wax-cotton print bunting will bring a festive riot of celebration to your home this Christmas, and their fabric dinner sets are one-of-a-kind pieces in glorious patterns and prints.
All postage is free, and gifts are packaged in 100% eco-friendly, plastic-free packaging. They will include a handwritten thank you card and photo of the impact your purchase has made to you or the giftee of your choice.
