Very Special Arts

The Story of the Recycled Tape Products

Our line of recycled cassette or video tapes is made by a very special group of artisans in New Delhi, India. They belong to the international organization formerly called Very Special Arts, which focuses on working with children and adults with disabilities.

The project focuses on bringing out the creative skills in these special artists and at the same time preparing them to become financially self-sufficient and self-employed. By teaching children and adults how to make bags, they are ensuring that they will have the skills necessary to survive in the world. They are also able to raise money to keep the program going, ensuring people with disabilities get a chance to express themselves and participate in society.

By purchasing the products made by this group, you are ensuring that this talented and special group of artisans remains employed and free of exploitation. You are also supporting green practices, since all of their products are made with recycled cassette tapes or video tapes.
