Samples and high-res images available
Amnesty International UK’s annual gifts catalogue is available now, featuring an array of high-quality and ethically-sourced products including brilliant bargains, inspirational buys and quirky treats.
The 68-page Amnesty shop catalogue offers a range of unique and eye-catching seasonal gifts for every budget, including clothing, cards, candles, and calendars.
The range includes many unique items made exclusively for Amnesty, including hand painted-mugs from Palestine made by women like Khitam Ayyoubi, who lives with her husband and daughters in Hebron. She says her life has been changed by making these mugs giving her an income and purpose outside of the home.
A new, exclusive addition to Amnesty is jewellery by Make Pivot, a social enterprise in London providing jobs to people experiencing homelessness, allowing them to build skills while earning.
Sacha Deshmukh, Amnesty International UK’s Chief Executive, said:
“This holiday season give gifts that give back.
“Everything in the Amnesty shop however small, helps us fight human rights abuses around the world by contributing to our work and raising awareness.
“All items are ethically produced, and many are from local communities in the UK and marginalised communities around the world.
“Buying a gift from Amnesty can make a real difference for freedom, equality and justice.”
Popular favourites are back, including Amnesty cards, t-shirts, inspirationally-themed chocolates and quirky bicycle-shaped pizza cutter. The range also includes plenty of ethical stocking fillers and ideas for Secret Santa.
All products are ethically sourced, led by fair trade and environmental principles.
