The Nzeru eyewear case is made from recycled inner tube by fairly paid tailors in Malawi. This eyewear case will help to keep your glasses safe and protected. Lined with eye catching “Chitenge” fabric-a wax-printed 100% cotton. Engraved with the iconic Cycle of Good logo making it the perfect safe little home for your specs. ‘Nzeru’ means ‘wisdom’ in Chichewa. Couldn’t think of a better name for a glasses case!
If you are anything like me and have to keep switching between long & short sighted specs (never got on with contacts) this is the case for you; soft but strong. I can't stand a great big bulky glasses box taking up way too much room in my already crammed full handbag! Some of the recycled inner tubes have manufacturers writing or the odd puncture repair patch meaning no two eyewear cases will ever be identical. Guaranteed unique!

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. 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.
They now collect used 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 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!
