Smash Up Studio
While we focus mainly on items made in the US and Canada, but every once in a while we find something handmade in another country that we just can't resist. That's what happened with Smash Up Studio. These fun computer bugs are designed here in the US by artist Carmi Y. Plaut and hand crafted by artisans in the Philippines. They are made with respect to people, community and earth, encouraging safe, healthy working conditions, that protects the environment, enable transparency, and empower factories, communities and organizations to build robust, flourishing businesses. The operations in the Philippines are audited regularly by an independent agency that deals exclusively with fair trade principles and endorses, embraces Fair Trade standards and compatibility. Smash Up Studios promotes improving and protecting the environment and the people who create their products.
