This reassuringly weighty doorstop and draught excluder is truly a thing of beauty, with a tie dye-like design printed onto dark maroon cotton. Kalinko’s door stops are handmade in Burma and the printing process means that every single one is unique.
The double-lined material has a top-quality feel, and the weighty gravel filling ensured it stayed put. Although its compact size means it’s not ideal if you’ve got deep gaps beneath the entire width of the door, it’s a great option if your cold air issues stem from doors swinging open, and the pretty paper packaging it comes in makes it a brilliant present. We also loved the fabric hook at the top – why don’t more door stops and draught excluders have this?
