Wow Imports: Fair trade and Recycled Fun Household Products

recycled clock

I recently ran across a site called WOW Imports, a Company who sells African fair trade bead and wire art as well as other imported items. As I was perusing the website, I thought, my readers would love these products.

The fair trade items help disadvantage African artisans, mainly from Zimbabwe and South African townships, to create a better lives for themselves. Some of the other items are made of recycled materials.

So, here are my new finds:

I fell in love with the above Israeli recycled aluminum clock. Update: It is no longer available. It is 8” by 15” and sells for $25.00. It comes in 4 different varieties. If clocks are not your thing, then maybe you would like the following items:

It is great for those who do not want to cut down trees for the holidays or don’t have room for a tree. Priced at $19.99. See the other Christmas tree designs.

Handmade wire wrapped & beaded serving pieces – salad servers, cake knives are great hostess gifts. Pictured above is a 4 piece handmade stainless steel glass nugget & wire wrapped fork set. Eating cake will never look so good.

    Very cool—it’s great to see the ingenious things that artisans in other countries produce; much of it being “recycled” products.

    My wife works part time at a fair trade store called One World Goods. They are a partner store of Ten Thousand Villages. One World Goods sells tons of neat things from countries from all over the world, and it’s a great place to shop at and not feel guilty. Thanks for spreading the word about fair trade.

    That’s amazing bead work! I especially love the beaded pigs. There must be around a thousand beads on them! Their spirally noses are adorable.
    I agree that the clock is phenomenal. It caught my eye the very second I saw it.
