ETHICAL IS THE NEW NORMAL

We are passionate about sustainable design, that is why our Design Pick Of The Month is The Store of Hope from Tampere, Finland. Founded in 2012 by Eeva Valopaasi, Store of Hope set out to change the world for good by providing products that have been ethically and sustainably made.

Eeva believes in making ethical the new normal and recently set a goal, which was successfully reached, to raise money to launch a web store that gathers empowering designs from around the world into one place. This collection of all the ethical and sustainable brands onto one platform  will make ethical shopping easier - a one stop shop for clean purchases.

The Store of Hope designs not only tell a story, of who made the product and where it was made, but the products also excel in quality and visual appeal. Cashmere scarves, various forms of jewellery, cashmere throws, paper products are just the start of many future products and brands that will be represented by store of hope.

We admire the process that Eeva and her team have made to find the workers from developing countries, ensuring the workers have good working conditions, quality incomes and other perks that we in the western world take for granted. The empowerment of the underprivileged makers is impacting the lives of many.
