The power of the sun in the palm of your hand

This high-quality portable solar lamp is the perfect introduction to personal solar-powered light – designed by artist Olafur Eliasson.

It’s great for camping, festivals, at the beach, or for brightening your home, garden, or balcony. Kids love the lamp – as a nightlight or for playtime – which makes it easy to teach them about sustainable living.

Featuring a dimmer, you can easily adjust the brightness of the lamp to what you need. 5 hours of charging in the sun produces more than 50 hours of light at the dimmest setting or 4 hours at the brightest setting.

Didactic postcard in sheep fiber, for adults and kids. An original gift for craft lovers that also trains cognitive and psychomotor skills A combination of design, craftmanship and representative landscapes from the chilean culture and identity, Kalofisha has sought to relieve the romanticism of writing a letter or a postcard: to feel the surprise of receiving it, to feel the smell and texture of a place, and certainly to feel the kilometers that it travelled to arrive to its destiny…

Ofisha means Sheep in Mapuzugún, the native language of the Mapuche people, originally from southern Chile. Sheep is a ruminant mammal and throughout Chile it is common to see criollo sheep breeding, breeds very typical of South America, which descend from sheep brought by Spaniards during the 16th century, and which with the passage of time have freely interbred. From its fiber called fleece, yarns of natural white and gray colors are obtained, through an artisanal and ancestral process very representative of traditional Chilean crafts: the sheep's hair is sheared, washed, chastened and finally spun with the help of a tool called a spindle, an elongated wooden object used to spin textile fibers. It is a trade reserved for women and has been passed on from grandmothers to daughters and from daughters to granddaughters. Women, mostly housewives, who often live in rural areas, and who tend to weave textiles that adapt to the rainy and cold climate of southern Chile.

More than just designing, Kalofisha cultivates a model that promotes good productive practices and exposes the territorial identity through the use of natural resources and traditional craftsmanship representative from the “Los Ríos” Region in Chile. The contemporary artisanal products are conceived through the sheep’s natural wool as predominant material.

Llamas are domestic species of camelids. Their domestication has been going on for thousands of years, and it is common for indigenous peoples of the highlands of Peru, Bolivia and Chile to keep them by forming herds. Since at least 1,500 years before the first Spaniard set foot in America, llamas and alpacas provided, in much of the Andean region, meat food and the fibers derived from their fur used as raw materials in clothing and textile fabrics of designs that reflected their everyday lives: "a way of being and doing in the world."
