"Our investment in the island and its inhabitants.
Our packaging are made of 100% material from St. Helena"

Made by SHAPE

SHAPE, is St. Helena’s first and only Social Enterprise.  Established in 2008, SHAPE has a crucial role in supporting the island’s disabled and vulnerable adults who could face social exclusion. SHAPE provides supportive training opportunities through environmentally friendly projects.

At SHAPE we are proud that our training programmes are geared around producing traditionally inspired crafts with strong, green initiatives.  Our crafters do this by taking a host of materials; many of them waste (cardboard, flax, fleece, jeans ) and coupled with using invasive plants (aloe and flax) create fantastic products for sale to locals and  tourists who visit.

As a Social Enterprise SHAPE receives 70 % of its funding from government  and expects to raise 30% of our own capital. This is achieved  through  the sale of our ‘hand made’ products, fundraising and  donations from  kind donors.

SHAPE’s exceptional work is worthy of your support. This a great organisation with a huge heart!

More About Shape:


SHAPE is exceptionally proud of its green initiative and we are incredibly proud of our Paper and Card Recycling facilities.


Because not only are we the only recycling facility on island, but the concept of paper recycling has been one that we have worked hard on over the years.

We began with a small shed at our Head Centre and started operations with a standard kitchen blender. But our vision grew and with the help of project funding we now have a small but growing enterprise, equipped with mechanised equipment and adequate production spaces.

We are situated at Donkey Plain, New Ground towards the North West of the island.
