Get to know Discovered and win their beautiful laptop sleeve
Have you already discovered ‘Discovered’? It is a market place to shop directly from artisans in upcoming markets. Discovered is a BCorp, just like we are. We both use business as a force for good. At MUD Jeans we loved the laptop sleeve made in the South African Townshipsmile.
First, some more about Discovered. Gijsbert van der Sleen started the company. He simply wanted to solve a problem. A lot of people around the world do not have access to the tools they need to sell their beloved products online, making them dependent on others and often leaving them very little of the selling price. He knew this could be changed and thus started a platform were artisans can sell their products.
The platform has a huge social impact on local artisans. The artisans are strong and talented woman. They want to express themselves through handcrafted and handmade goods. It is not only the money that is important for the artisans. The proud and dignity they get, knowing their goods are a success in Europe, is the most important.
The laptop sleeve is made from recycled brown paper collected from a local packaging factory. The paper is fused to a special cotton that makes it strong enough to stitch and then coated with Nano Liquid Glass to be water resistant. Yes, it is just paper, but paper with science. Have a look at all the products made by this Township:
