Fair trade Homewares
Wednesday, 7 September 2016 | Joanna
Our newest section features products for the home.
If you're looking for a wedding, engagement, Christmas or birthday present for someone who loves being surrounded by ethical, eco friendly and fairly traded goods we have the perfect solution.
Our recycled aluminium range is made in Rajasthan in Northern India using traditional metalworking skills and modern materials: post consumer aluminium waste from old food and drinks cans etc are melted together before being poured into a sand mould. Once the item is cooled, it is polished and hand decorated with layer upon layer of clear and coloured enamel to give a really attractive depth of shine.
Another recycled product is our range of leather-look photo frames, notebooks and jewellery boxes. Made from cotton rags turned into paper, then pressed and treated to give the look and feel of leather, it has the advantage of being vegan but also being able to take natural dyes in all kinds of colour and pattern. Check out the range of colours available.
Finally, our bamboo salad bowls and salad servers are made in Vietnam from strips of bamboo wound round a mould, then lacquered using an eco friendly lacquer made from cashew nut trees. They come in a range of colours and sizes so you're sure to find the one that suits you.
All these products, like the fashion accessories and jewellery we specialise in, are sourced from fair trade suppliers who are members of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers. We hope you love them as much as we do.
