Smiley & Hoptimist join forces in creating a unique and playful figurine bound to bring a smile into the workplace or home.
In a three year deal beginning with distribution across Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Spain, France & USA; and a trade launch at renowned Paris design trade show Maison&Objet.
Smiley is now the recognized symbol of happiness across the planet; the team behind Hoptimist wanted to continue the spirit or sharing simple happiness with others. The cheerful, sweet Hoptimists were originally designed by Danish cabinetmaker Hans Gustav Ehrenreich. Hoptimists are all about smiles – and a surplus of energy; springy little characters who light up the floor.
As Hoptimist say “ ‘most smiles start with another smile’ so our collaboration is a match made in heaven… double the fun!”.
Smiley Fair Trade is a first; a full range of fair-trade products with a unique design twist supporting local third world communities of producers.
Sold in European retail store Altermundi as well as hundreds of other stores across Europe, Groupe SOS set up their fair-trade facility 7 years ago in order to work with small groups of artists and craftsmen in third world countries.The project encourages and promotes fair-trade practices at the same times as creating stylish, modern and desirable products that are not usually associated to fair-trade product ranges. Each Smiley Fair-trade product has its own unique story and cause which it supports.
All products are made according to fair-trade standards that help to improve marginalized producers living conditions in developing countries.
Keep Smilin’ 🙂
