Design on a mission
Tiny Miracles products are so much more than only aesthetic designs. They are made by hand by the women of the Pardeshi community, living in the red light area of Mumbai, India. Tiny Miracles works with this community by supporting them with education, healthcare, fun activities, work and awareness classes. With every purchase, you make we are one step closer to creating self-supporting communities.
Turn your empty bottle into a vase
Empty bottles can literally be found anywhere in the world; from well-off and developed areas to impoverished city slums. And they can hold their water, making it an ideal vase. The only thing needed to make it look pretty is a beautiful cover. Our paper vase covers are hand folded by the women of Tiny Miracles. Their unique triangular paper design ensures easy assembly in under a minute.
Miracles from Mumbai
The Tiny Miracles Foundation is a Netherlands-based charity founded in 2010 by Laurien Meuter and her cousin designer Pepe Heykoop. The foundation focuses its efforts on eliminating poverty in one of the most impoverished city areas of Mumbai, India: the Pardeshi community in slums bordering on the red light district.
Our key ambition was to help this small community of 700 people become self-supporting in 10 years time. We are well on our way. By the year 2020 they will be middle class citizens. Over the last 5 years we have created a successful working business model that has acquired the expertise to fulfill our future mission: breaking the cycle of poverty in any community around the world.
