Copper Straw NEWA

The re-usable copper straw is made of copper. The use of copper for storage has in Nepali households a very long tradition. The belief is that it has medical benefits.

It is hand-crafted by metal artisans who work on centuries old temples and statues.

All our products support the local economy, contribute to maintenance of century old craftsmanship, protect the environment, empower women and create pride among Nepali people.

Say no to plastic and get yourself one of these sexy straws. Show the world that you care and carry your own karma with you. We also offer it in a practical pouch which is stitched by burnt survivors who make their income working as tailors for Ekadesma. The materials are left-over fabric from their collections. 100 % cotton.

We like to give our coffee a story, a face and a connection between the farmers and you!

We source them direct from small cooperatives in Kaski, Ilam, Nuwakot, Kavre and Sindhupalchowk Districts in the Mid-hills in Nepal and work closely with the local farmers, to help to improve their livelihoods. Overall we work with more than 800 farmers families.

Every harvest is different depending on climate, farmers and some unforeseeable factors like earthquakes, economic blockade, corona etc. We also add new farmer’s owned cooperatives according to demand. Please ask us whats in our shelf. We are happy to recommend the right coffee for you.
