Generous Gesture

Font Bureau supports a fair trade project called Generous Gesture, which sells a series of beautiful, limited-edition shawls designed by Claudia Mens and produced in Bangladesh.

Claudia is a Dutch designer who works together with Petr van Blokland, the designer of Proforma and Productus.

The silk shawls, which combine typography and ornamentation, are all handmade using a combination of block printing and embroidery. Each shawl comes in a handsome gift box with a booklet explaining how it was made.
