ARTISAN OF THE MONTH - DOPPER

Dopper’s mission is to achieve a world in which people are conscious of the environment we live in, where the amount of single-use plastic is reduced and where everyone, near and far, has access to safe drinking water.

WHY THEY DO IT?

Their biggest motivation is the massive amount of plastic waste that is currently produced:

Worldwide, only 1% of plastic is recycled.50% of plastic is thrown away directly after use. Each day, freight-loads of plastic reach our oceans - often unintentionally - via streets, canals, rivers and seas. The five largest ocean areas where this plastic waste converges, can contain up to 36 times more plastic than plankton. The plastic enters our food chain in small particles via marine life and birds.Annually, the plastic in the oceans causes the death of 1 million seabirds and 100.000 marine mammals. And last but not least: it requires 1 litre of water and 1 litre of oil to produce a single plastic bottle.

Our Roots

OUR STORY

We have a passion for handcraft designs and craftmanship, we launched ‘Feather & Twigs’ to focus on working as a family (including our ever escaping labrador 'Lucca') to explore our passion for high quality handmade homewares and gifts. As keen travellers internationally and within the UK, we love to meet and work closely with all our skilled artisans, which has allowed us to be able to call these makers, friends and have already been amazed by the skill, care and effort that has gone into their creations.
