Pots of style

I just had to show you these beautiful pots, which my little brother was given as a Christmas present. (Envious? Moi? The very idea!) I am sorely tempted to order some for myself as they are just too divine for words:

They are made from recycled magazines and are from Traidcraft, which is doing sterling work proving that fair trade products are very often more desirable than the alternatives (which surely must be 'unfair trade', and what kind of perverse monster would actually want that?).

Even better, on the website you can read about Chut. She is one of the women who makes these for Mai Handicrafts, which provides a fair income for disadvantaged and ethnic minority families in Vietnam. End result = warm glows all round, wouldn't you say?
