Since October is National Fair Trade Month it is fitting that one of my favorite paper suppliers for Sustain & Heal, Mr. Ellie Pooh, is celebrating its brand new membership with the Fair Trade Federation. Sustain & Heal’s inaugural design in late 2007 (Florence pictured at right) is letterpress printed on Mr. Ellie Pooh elephant dung paper. Since then fair trade certification for pooh paper has long been on De Milo’s wish list. Congratulations, Karl Wald, on work well done!
Below are a few designs from Sustain & Heal that feature Mr. Ellie Pooh paper.
