A Generous Gesture
The basic principle of Generous Gestures is creating Fair Trade products: the wish to exchange ideas and skills, a win-win situation for both parties. Together with Elizabeth Visser from Strawberries-fabrics, Generous Gesture started cooperating with a non-governmental organization (NGO) in Bangladesh, Kumudini Welfare Trust.

“Making a Generous Gesture” applies to all parties involved in the product; The giver makes a Generous Gesture towards the person he or she presents this gift; it is a way of showing affection; The manufactures of the shawls: weavers, diesinkers, dyers, and embroiders: they all make a Generous Gesture by making these beautiful products for us.
The NGO Kumudini Welfare Trust is generous by not only giving people a job, but also health insurance, and an education; Strawberries-fabrics is the generous contact between the people in Bangladesh and the designers in the Netherlands; Claudia Mens initiated the idea of a Generous Gesture, but could never have dreamed that the result would show so soon!
