Dutch design small vase by Pepe Heijkoop - handmade in India

With the ‘Paper Vase Cover’ you create a modern design vase in a snap. This small paper foldable vase fits on almost every empty glass and can be modeled in many ways by the triangle-folded structure.

● Material: coated gerecycled papier
● Dimensions envelop: 18,4 x 11,8 cm
● Dimensions vase: 29 cm high x 12 tot 12,5 cm broad
● You can choose between: watercolor grey, watercolor white, watercolor blue, white, yellow tones, blue tones, light grey tones or pink tones
● Fair produced in India
● Dutch design

The foldable vase comes in a beautiful envelope of the same material: thick paper with a matt coating in various colours.. By forming the paper cover along the prefolded lines you fold your own design vase. Particularly because of its simplicity and refreshing look. Moreover, the vase cover does not get wet itself so it is fit for unlimited use.

The Paper Vase Cover is a design by the Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop and was awarded with the Interior Innovation Award 2013 at the international design fair imm Cologne.

Fair from India
The vase is hand folded by women who are supported by the Dutch foundation Tiny Miracles. This foundation focuses on the 'Pardeshi', a community of about 700 people living on the street in the red light district of Mumbai, India.

The ambition of Tiny Miracles is to break the poverty circle of the whole community and make the people self-sufficient as soon as possible. They therefore receive a good salary (nine times as much as their regular cleaning job) and get health care. In addition, the foundation sends the kids to English school and organizes many fun activities.

Pepe Heykoop

Dutch designer Pepe Heykoop (1984) founded his studio straight after his graduation from department 'Living' at the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2008. Pepe's work deals mainly with handwriting and the handmade. He discovers new low-tech techniques in his studio in Amsterdam. This is where the manufacturing of his unique pieces is realized.

Products made by Studio Pepe Heykoop are hardly perpendicular: growth is essential. He is interested in the link between design and art. This comes with his natural tendency to recycle objects.

Pepe participates in multiple designshows including: Salone del mobile Milan, TENT London, DMY Berlin, IMM Cologne. workshop In collabroation with the Tiny Miracles Foundation Pepe produces in his Indian workshop articles in larger quantities, i.e. the Paper Vase Cover

Tiny Miracles Foundation

The Tiny Miracles Foundation is a Netherlands-based charity founded in 2010 by Pepe's cousin Laurien Meuter. Tiny Miracles focuses on one specific street with a community of around 700 people whose only home is right on the pavement in the red light district in Mumbai, India. The ambition is to lift this small community from ‘very poor’ to ‘middle class’ within the next 8 years:in 2020 the community is self-supporting. Then they should have the education and corresponding healthcare of a middle class human being and an income of at least 8 euro per person per day. And perhaps most importantly; happy childhood memories.

Essential for success is to enable the Pardeshi’s to become self-supporting. The community’s economy relies on selling cane baskets, but there is hardly a market for cane work. There are very limited other jobs in the area, so Pepe Heykoop set up his workshop right in the middle of the community in 2012 and teaches the parents skills and provides them with work to increase the household’s earning power.
