It's great when something you order online arrives and completely meets expectations and item description. Even better hoping that the sale helps people in harder circumstances.
I really like this case, it's well made and repurposes discarded goods imaginatively.
It's serving its intended purpose well!

Want to keep your laptop safe, your tablet protected but not in a nasty plastic thing?... Then we have just the case for you. The Kuphunzira is made from recycled inner tubes by fairly paid tailors in Malawi. Our cases are perfect to help prevent knocks and bumps from causing damage to the contents.

The Kuphunzira is lined with eye catching “Chitenge” fabric which is a wax-printed 100% cotton with stunning African designs. Whatever fabric catches the tailor's eye he or she will use in producing these unique pieces. Any remnants are used to make the children's clothing. You are now connected with the artisan who made this for you!

Every time you carry your laptop and open this case you can smile, knowing this case tells a story and a very good story too.

Each case has the iconic Cycle of Good logo and are shower proof to protect from splashes and rain.

‘Kuphunzira’ means ‘to learn’ in Chichewa (the language widely spoken in Malawi). So…'happy kuphunzira'.

Some of our recycled inner tubes have manufacturers writing or the odd puncture repair patch meaning no two cases will ever be identical ( but isn’t that great to know that yours is truly unique?)

Dimensions: Length 27cm Height 25cm

Helping to end poverty in one of the poorest communities in the world. Currently employing 10 Malawian tailors full time, but with ambitions to grow this to a team of 100, they earn a good wage and can support their families, without any charity donations or handouts.

Cycle of Good is the latest initiative to join a hub of social enterprises created by the charity over the past ten years. Situated in Chilomoni Township, Malawi, the enterprises together employ 500 people who have trained and worked to create businesses that fund a vital children’s centre.

The centre provides early years care and family support to around 2000 vulnerable children at any one time. It’s a quiet revolution of skills building and economic growth in a country with no welfare state: if you don’t earn, you don’t eat.

Cycle of Good builds on all of this amazing work to make something even more wonderful. They now collect waste inner tubes and other products, ship them in their containers to Malawi and give them to the tailors who carefully craft useful and beautiful items.

They also carefully source other Malawian made items, especially when they are made from recycled and sustainable materials. They ship all these amazing products back to the UK where they sell them to lovely people like you! The profits pay for them to send more containers to Malawi and all surpluses directly fund the work of the children’s centre. That is why they call it the Cycle of Good!
