At Tree Stripes, it’s not just about the interior products and it never has been.  We're on a mission to empower local artisans, preserve the environment and celebrate handmade imperfection.

Empowerment

We’re committed to empowering and uplifting the living standards of rural artisans. Many of our female artisans choose to comfortably work from home and make their own hours. This flexibility allows them to care for their families while bringing in an additional income.

Our team of women receive ongoing training to diversify their skills to ensure a guaranteed flow of work.

Kind to Earth

By promoting sustainable design, we are reducing the environmental impact of our products, from the sourcing of raw materials to their manufacturing, transportation, and designs.

Our key products are made from recycled paper and we reuse all paper leftovers from our main production to create new paper pulp for the next run. This has helped eliminate the need to transport waste material – an entirely zero waste production cycle.

When it comes to cartons received from our production partner, instead of discarding them, these are reused to pack orders. 

Mindfully Made

All of our products are made by hand. From the moulds to the motifs on them, it’s our artisans’ hands, their skills and stories that are at the forefront of everything we do. Shaping paper, pressing delicate motifs and creating unique structures, they bring to life what we could merely sketch on a piece of paper.

We’re 100% dependent on the human touch, not machines. Our goal is to continue to support the creativity, ingenuity and passion of our artisans while preserving their culture and traditions

RETHINK PACKAGING

We think outside of the shipping box. We have no affiliation with plastic, and are dedicated to 100% recyclable and reusable packaging.

For this reason we keep our packaging unbranded, so you can regift and reuse, and continue the cycle of sharing the love.

Several of our pots are nested when packed. This means every second pot is slightly wider so we are able to nest two pots of the same height to reduce the impact on our environment.

When you purchase from Tree Stripes, you’re improving the lives of over 200 Sri Lankan women and their families through fair wages, training, education, and access to community health.

Thank you for being a part of this journey with us!
