Tesla’s still accepting pre-orders, though, and customers can now privately customize a Signature Series model for $132,000, before tax credits.

Roulottes’ Colorful European-Style Caravans are a Place to Call Home

Comments Off on Roulottes’ Colorful European-Style Caravans are a Place to Call Home

When Hoekstra was a kid in the 60s, he saw these classic  mobile  caravans still in use and he promised himself that one day he would buy one. When he bought his first fixer-upper, he was a graphic designer/illustrator in Amsterdam  – something that came in handy for designing, but didn’t exactly train him to be a builder. However, with borrowed tools, 20 weekends and a trek to the south of France, he eventually had a beautifully restored caravan. People loved the design and immediately started asking: Is it for sale? Is for rent? Do you know of other caravans for sale? Very few antique, restorable wagons were left, so Hoekstra decided to try his hand at designing and building one from scratch. He showed his early sketches to a friend who immediately bought it, and thus, a business was born. Soon after, Hoekstra realized he needed carpenters and a workshop pronto, so he traveled to the Czech Republic to set up shop. The wagons are built with beer , laughter, and fine workmanship. They are popular with different people; some live in their wagon permanently, campsites and hotels buy them to rent as romantic get-aways, and some are even used as backyard workshops or studies. There is even one reported to be a cozy waiting room for a dentist’s office in Switzerland. In total, Roulettes has built and sold 80 caravans and they are noticing a trend for clients wanting caravans with bathrooms and energy efficient features . Moreover, what attracts customers to the designs are their unique look, compact size, and the fact that they do not need a building permit. Hoekstra enjoys his clientele, saying: “Most are blessed with ‘good taste’. If not, they would buy a plastic mobile home for less money. It’s always fun for us to see how their new caravan is decorated. Most clients decorate their caravan with all kinds of fancy that they would never let into their houses; it is half the fun of owning one!” In addition to designing and building caravans and datchas , Roulottes has eight caravans for rent on a beautiful campsite near Ajoux, France. Roulottes has interest in wagons from the USA, but the shipping cost to the USA from Europe is prohibitive, so this European gypsy caravan building business is seeking collaboration in the California area. So – got a hammer, a love of history and a flair with the paintbrush? + Roulottes

Comments Off on Bangladesh Garment-Factory Fire Kills 112 Because of Safety Issues

Late Saturday an industrial blaze took down a multi-level garment factory outside of Dhaka, Bangladesh, claiming the lives of at least 112 people. The fire is said to be the country’s worst-ever in the industrial sector, and it eerily echoed a similar incident that  claimed 300 lives in Pakistan  back in September. “The factory had three staircases, and all of them were down through the ground floor so the workers could not come out when the fire engulfed the building,” Mohammad Mahbub, the operations director for fire department, told the  Associated Press . “Had there been at least one emergency exit through outside the factory, the casualties would have been much lower.” READ MORE > Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Bangladesh , clean clothes campaign , Dhaka , eco-fashion , Ethical Fashion , Fashion , forced labor , green , human rights , Sustainable Fashion , sustainable style” title=”Bangladesh Garment-Factory Fire , sweatshop labor , sweatshop workers , sweatshops , Tazreen Fashions , walmart , workers rights
