Minimal style, giving back to the earth.
"HARTWOOD HOUSE is a collection of traditional hand-made bags from Indonesia, brought to you by the woman who brings you Salt Store, Elly Brown. Profits from each bag sold will be donated to The Orangutan Project a
nd contribute to buying back land, habitat protection and animal aid in Borneo."Known as the 'lungs of the Earth' the rain forests in Indonesia provide 45% of the Earths oxygen.
Fires are raging across 5000km length of Indonesia, the air is toxic and affecting the local people causing many health issues. This is not a natural disaster. These fires are intentionally set by palm oil companies, to clear land of native trees to plan their 'cash crop' which is a cheap ingredient and unnecessarily used in cosmetic and food products. Orangutans are only found in this part of the world and are now under threat of becoming extinct within the next 10 years."
