Testimonial

"It was one of life's most wonderful coincidences when I heard about Pavitra through a relative of mine. I thought furnishing an entire new house would be chaotic and a headache to execute, but working with Pavitra made it not only easy as a breeze but exciting as well. Not many designers would take a client's personal taste into consideration when planning a space, luckily I ended up with someone who does. I've met many interior designers but Pavitra's name always comes first to mind when friends or family ask me for a recommendation."

Design with a Purpose

I would like to introduce you to the works of designer Pepe Heykoop today. The fact that he has a purpose to his design and passion draws me to his work. Pepe not only believes in sustainable design but also in sustainable communities. In pursuit of this noble cause Pepe and his cousin Laurien Meuter set up the Tiny Miracles foundation in the red light district of Mumbai, India. The objective of this foundation was to enable this community of over 700 people to be self -supporting by way of education for parents and their children, by teaching the Pardeshi community valuable skills and by creating jobs. Pepe set up his workshop in this particular red light district and creates jobs for the community. Till date they have created 100+ jobs! Their products are showcased all around the world in trade fairs such as ICFF New York, IMM Cologne, Maison&Objet to name a few and sold globally in upmarket stores.

 

 

Pepe’s products are as remarkable as his intentions behind his cause “Tiny Miracles”. Please join me to spread the word! Till next time…” Stay purposeful… Stay Funky”
