These bottles which are made by papier maché –technique are a charming way to bring colour to home, with a sensible price. The cover of the bottle is handmade with coloured recycled newspaper, and inside the bottle is a recycled plastic bottle, which makes this vase water-tight.
Height is about 24 cm, diabeter of the bottom 8 cm. Because the bottles are handmade, there are small varieties in colours and patterns.
The production is based on recycling. Old newspapers are recycled into paper maché products. The molds for the paper maché products are made by a local artist in the Philippines, who is also in charge of the production. The paper maché production is taking place as cottage industry in a region specialised in this handicraft. The people working on the paper maché products are paid a fair price/income.
