Deux Mains sustainably handcrafts leather goods to create opportunities to fight poverty and to work towards a healthier planet. The Deux Mains factory is 100% solar powered, employee-owned, and each artisan receives a living wage, healthcare benefits, paid maternity/paternity leave, paid vacation, interest-free loans, and University matching scholarships among many other social benefits. It is a brand inspired by the strength of the Haitian people, where all goods are produced in small batches, using high quality leather and upcycled materials, including car tires and inner tubes.

Upcycled Inner Tube Journal
A resuable journal that makes an impact on both planet and people. Our partner in Haiti pays for the retreival of auto tire inner tubes that have been discarded for waste. If not rescued, these will be burned, releasing toxic chemicals into the air. Once rescued and sanitized, they are turned into unique journal covers that can be refilled over and again. Made by a team of talented women and men in a solar workshop. Size: 9″ x 6″. 120 lined pages.
