Oklah needs bottles

Our friend Oklah Tetteh in Koforidua, Ghana makes all of our bottle glass beads from old bottles. Some colours are hard for him to make because the bottles are scarce. These are the really valuable ones:

  • Gin - Bombay Sapphire, Plymouth and Blooms
  • Harvey's Bristol Cream sherry
  • Old Vines in Young Hands - Portuguese white wine

If you have any, please bring them to us and we'll take them to Ghana. Meda ase - thank you - from Oklah Tetteh.
