Our UK Supplier is still a relatively small business with a strong ethical policy at its core. They aim to buy from small scale producers who use largely natural materials and traditional techniques to produce beautiful and interesting articles. All of their products are fairly traded. We believe that the best way to reduce poverty is through trade.
Our UK supplier seeks to support marginalised small producers and aim to help workers to move from income insecurity to economic self sufficiency. The manufacture of goods for us generates income for the local community and we hope that these benefits should enrich the quality of life of the local community.
Made in India.
