Kylie Kwong Tableware Available at Oxfam Australia

That’s right folks, you can now purchase acclaimed chef Kylie Kwong’s first ever range of tableware at the Oxfam Fair Trade store! This amazing selection of cups, plates and bowls were specially designed in conjunction with Mai Vietnamese Handicrafts, an Oxfam Australia Fair Trade partner based near Hanoi in North Vietnam.

This amazing little workshop was set up over 20 years ago to support street children and features mostly women. Since those early days in 1990, the company now employs the mothers and sisters of the original street children, and they are paid a decent wage thanks to Fair Trade support.

Kylie Kwong herself designed the graphics for her stunning ‘Lotus’ tableware, and as you can see from the picture this simple but elegant range would make a stunning addition to any home.

Miss Kwong said –

I wanted to create a design that was not only aesthetically pleasing but which also had great depth and a wonderful story to it. As part of my inspiration I looked towards the symbol of the lotus flower. To me the lotus is such a deep and meaningful symbol, which represents femininity, spirituality, and the importance of nature and the environment.
