RAJ 108 - A FAIR TRADE COMPANY
Grace your universe
In sanskrit it means kingdom of the cosmos
Raj108 refers to the domain of the soul, of the divine. 108 is a sacred number in yoga. The 1 represents the One, the Everything. The 0 represents the Nothingness, and the 8 represents the human being - composed of 5 elements under the influence of 3 great cosmic qualities. We believe that every human being has the divine right to live nobly on this earth, surrounded by love, light & happiness.
The practice of Yoga and Meditation will slowly begin to change your lifestyle. What begins as a way to find harmony, peace and balance, leads one to the realisation that the environment that you live in affects one, both internally and externally. Beauty, simplicity, harmony with nature, are some of the values that begin to inspire the way to decorate yourself and your home. No more wasteful buying, but acquiring long lasting, high-quality fair traded minded products. Change yourself, and the world around you will change.
RAJ 108 aims to create yogic lifestyle products that grace your personal universe. We do so through loving & ethically responsible business relations, so together we can help others grace their environments and improve their quality of life. We offer classically designed products that last longer, are easier to handle and are more enviromental-friendly. For example, we prefer using lighter materials for products that require frequent washing such as clothes, bedsheets and towels, in order to help conserve water. We work with recycled materials, local artist's projects and second-hand goods, both originals and re-designed products. We support community fair-trade and work with artisans and small manufacturers.
LIVE IN LOVE & GRATITUDE
"Gratitude is not only the greatest of the virtues but the parent of all others."
Grace Mother Earth
We strongly believe that the saying " less is more" is very valuable when it comes to buying products. Buying long lasting products that last is preferable to consuming cheap throw-away products. Mother Earth will soon be depleted of her storehouse of natural resources and we have to seriously begin to think about how what are consuming is contributing to this. We at Raj 108 believe that if a product has a higher value you will keep it for lifetime, rather than throwing it away when you tire of it. We also aim to work with second hand redesigned products, and recycled material. All to help being a contributor to create a better world together.
We believe Raj 108 can – and should — have a positive impact on the world-at-large.
It is our vision that we inspire our customers and suppliers to do good, for their communities - to be innovators, leaders and contributors to an inclusive society and a healthy environment so that everyone we touch can endure and prosper.
We are committed to greater corporate transparency and to be a force for positive social and environmental change by supporting community fair-trade, defending human rights, raising self-esteem and protecting the planet.
RAJ 108 is committed to:
- Helping communities prosper wherever we do business.
- Offering high quality, ethically purchased and responsibly produced products.
- Minimizing our environmental footprint and inspiring others to do the same.
