Product Feature: Tiffins

We work with Ten Thousand Villages to provide these fun tiffin carriers created by Noah’s Ark International Exports. A tiffin is actually a light mid-day meal, so these tiffin lunch boxes, which were made in India, will help you carry your food in style.

 

Noah’s Ark, the producer of the tiffin carriers, is a fair trade company that was started in 1986 in one room of a family home in Moradabad, India. Samuel Masih, the founder, noticed that exporters were taking advantage of handicraft artisans, so he started Noah’s Ark to promote these artisans and their crafts in a fair and safe environment. Noah’s Ark now employs around 300 makers, and provides them benefits such as education and medical treatment. Stop by the shop to browse the tiffin carriers and help support the makers.
