Papyrus fair trade

Fair trade is more than import and distribution of papyrus. The personal relationship to the papyrus producers and their family members is important to us and guarantees no middlemen in Europe pushing prices upwards. This is important!
“We understand that behind every sheet of papyrus is a human being with basic needs”

Every year we travel to Egypt to get a good overlook on the papyrus production.

All family members help to maintain the efficient operation of the production of papyrus and we help with fair prices so the families can also live a reasonable life, and not just survive.

Of course we continue to buy the normal quantities from the families even if we have fluctuations in demand and place them on stock, so that they can count on a steady income even during economically hard times.
