bibol: a cooperative fair and ecological
At the end of the 70's, I, Little Moon, was 13 years old. A peasant girl, I left Vietnam alone for France. I studied and learnt French. After 20 years of a professional career in France, I decided to return to visit my home land, with my husband. Together we discovered the Vietnam countryside, from which I only had known my small village. During our traveling in Vietnam, our desire was essential a way to develop a fair trade system: to present the know how of the ancestral Vietnamese craftsmen in France. To combine tradition and durable development, fair trade and economic growth for the Crafts people. So we create bibol. bibol conceives and underlines the ecological & artisanal products in bamboo.
bibol & fair trade
Little Moon started to work in the fields when she was 8 years old. She had experienced herself, of small children working like adults, misery, The lack of prospects and of an real future, motivated Little Moon. She and her husband have been establishing a fairer way to produce bowls made from bamboo. The craftsmen, in exchange of decent wages, work and engage with: - to prevent children from working, - to register their children for school, - to replant the natural resources that they uses, - to limit their CO2 emissions.
bibol & ecology
The bamboo is still omnipresent in the Vietnamese culture, ie: in the gastronomy: chopsticks and bamboo shoots, in the architecture: scaffolds, drains, partitions and frames - while passing by paper and penmanship, clothing and furniture. Insidiously the plastic and the concrete replace it step by step. However, bamboo is a resource with undeniable qualities: flexible, solid, resistant, growing quickly, stabilizing the soil and converting CO2. The preservation of its usage is the guarantee of the continuation of its culture.
