Tall palmyra trees grow around RDM and across the village of Parakkanvilai. The palm leaves are a natural, environmentally friendly waste product. They are dried in the sun before being made into products for sale by RDM including bags and hats.
The workers in the RDM Palm Leaf Centre have developed Palm Crosses made from the palmyra leaves. They are of extremely high quality, and handmade in safe, airy working conditions by workers who are paid fair wages.
RDM Palm Crosses are extremely good value, available in exchange for a donation:
£20 to receive 100 Palm Crosses
£25 to receive 150 Palm Crosses
£30 to receive 200 Palm Crosses
