Nominated for Creative Heroes Awards 2019
For about seven years Pepe Heykoop has been designing beautiful products for his Tiny Miracles Foundation, such as paper vases and leather lamps. These are manufactured by people in the poorest slums of Mumbai, India. Pepe teaches them new skills and offers them work and a future. The products are shipped as flat packages and sold here. Around seven hundred Indian people can now earn an income.
Jury:‘A very special project by an engaging designer. He proves that teaching people new skills to make fairly simple products in workshops in India works.’
