These Stationery Carriers are Ethically Made in Cambodia

Are you tired of constantly replacing broken crayons, lost erasers and snapped pencils? We understand the frustration, which is why we created these stationery carriers. 

Our stationery carriers are handmade in Cambodia by sewing graduates from Human and Hope Association, a grassroots community centre in Siem Reap. Each of these stationery carriers takes two hours to make at the homes of these graduates, using machines purchased through Human and Hope Association’s microfinance program. The stationery carriers feature eight crayons, a pencil, eraser, ruler and twelve coloured pencils. As you can see in the video above, these carriers roll up easily and close with a coconut shell button so they can be easily transported. This makes our stationery carriers the perfect road trip accessory!

If you weren’t already convinced about how much more organised these carriers will make your lives, wait until we tell you the best part; each stationery carrier provides 14 hours of education to a Cambodian child living in poverty. Yep, you read correctly. The profits from the sale of our stationery carriers and other handicrafts go right back to Human and Hope Association so they can provide education to over 200 Cambodian children every day.

At only $14.99, our stationery carriers are the perfect gift for kids or those adults who like to colour. Once the pencils and crayons are used up, they can easily be replaced or the carriers can be used to store paintbrushes, makeup brushes or chopsticks!

Our stationery carriers are available in a wide range of colours, so why not pick some up now for Christmas?
