comments: these radios are beautiful in design, materials and craft. they are made in the designer's village which helps provide work to people in an area that is struggling. it's an admirable story of a designer who chooses to use his design skills to help the community he is from rather than leaving for more profitable work. good design + good deeds; something i am seeing more and more of these days. makes me happy.
