Isak home accessories are made with the simple aim of making your world a little happier and a little more beautiful, but what we’ve learnt since working with them for the last 2 years, is that this aim goes beyond their customers.
Isak are not only passionate about creating a brand of responsibly manufactured products for the home (using sustainable and recycled materials) but they have also made a fantastic contribution to our work with forgotten children around the world.
Isak was brought to life by Swedish designer Sandra Isaksson who creates vibrant artwork with a retro infused twist. Last year Sandra provided all the illustrations for our 2013 calendar free of charge so that we could use them to raise funds for our work. You can still buy these at reduced prices to keep your year organised and your wall beautiful!
Isak also donated a very generous percentage of profits from the sale of their fantastic ‘5 a day’ print designs to Children on the Edge. These prints displayed a colourful array of vegetable characters to help children learn about healthy eating. Through the sale of these pieces, Isak raised £1,330 for our projects!
This is enough to fund our kitchen gardens in Thailand for 4 months. These gardens provide a sustainable food source not only for the 72 refugee children from Burma who are staying at our Crisis Centre, but for other children’s projects in the area. In true Isak style these gardens keep the planet beautiful by using natural fertilizers and crop rotation techniques instead of pesticides and chemicals. The children absolutely love being part of the project, not only enjoying the creativity of it, but learning agricultural skills for the future.
We’d like to say a huge thank you to Isak for their support. Do find out more about their ‘beautiful happy things’, keep buying calendars, and watch this space for future Isak and Children on the Edge ventures!
