Modern day slavery paper chains, by Aesop and illustrators

unseenchristmas_5_lo

Consultancy Aesop has completed some beautiful but harrowing work for charity Unseen, which campaigns against modern day slavery.

Aesop worked with illustrators such as Tom Jay and Radio to create what at first appear to be festive paper chains – but on closer inspection, depict individual stories of recent victims of slavery.

The paper chains are over two metres in length when the links are connected together, and are available to buy online from unseenchristmas.com at £7.95 each. All money raised will go towards the charity.

The Home Office estimates there are currently around 13,000 victims of slavery in the UK.
