Lavinia Trade was founded by a mother and daughter, Yvonne and Phenia from Denmark.
Embarking with their passion, they strived to minimize the impact on the earth, always prioritizing organic food, natural products and animal welfare above all.
Back in 2015 Yvonne opened a Nordic interior shop, searching for a natural alternative to plastic sponge/scourers.
After a lot of research, she stumbled upon Toockies.
Toockies is where it all began. Produced through a project in India – on each product shows a name, of whom created these bags. Enabling the buyer to look up the creator. The result of the project was to empower very poor women in rural areas outside Kolkata, India.
Lavinia Trade works closely with the local NGO Promise Charitable Trust to manage this project. When the women submit the finished knitted products, free sanitary pads are handed out to the women.
These Fairtrade products took a hit – the love for Toockies have ever since exploded since.
Toockies are a combination of Nrodic quality and durability with social responsibility with the fairtrade project in India. An eco-friendly brand that is firmly showing the way to a plastic-free and sustainable lifestyle.
