The Thyolo papermaking and craft shop provides work for young artisans who have lost their parents to the AIDS pandemic and who now have few other income options. The shop is diligent in using all-natural, sustainable materials to make its crafts. Artisans use proceeds from their work to finish school, to send their children to school, and even to contribute to others in need, including the elderly, widows, and AIDS patients in their communities. The artisans also donate their time to teach art to children in local schools, again using renewable materials.
Eco-friendly, handcrafted cards make interesting holiday greetings.
