Azeti Interiors have been members of BAFTS for several years and comply with the Ten Principles of Fair Trade. Here's what they say:
We pride ourselves on being socially and ethically responsible, and following the principles of Fair trade.

Azeti is a family run business, trading in hand-made homewares and serve ware. The items we sell have been chosen for their aesthetic qualities and craftsmanship and rather uniquely because it allows us to support the communities from which they originate.

Wiltshire based Alexander Mayer, created Azeti in 2007 simply because he wanted to be his own boss. Not entirely sure what to sell, Ali sought inspiration from India, the sights, sounds and colours of which had entranced him since his teenage travels there. “On one of my trips I came across a row of small artisan shops in a suburb of Delhi selling beautiful and richly coloured aluminium and enamel bowls.”

These became the first Azeti import and range; a glorious collection of highly polished recycled Aluminium serve ware with bright enamel finishing, for which Azeti is still the exclusive distributors. “The best seller in this range is the brushed bowls and we've recently added to this range. What I love most about these products though is that I have seen the impact our sales are having on the communities that make them. As a result of making and selling these beautiful objects, homes and families have been greatly improved.”

In 2018 the Azeti brand became part of Tilnar Art who have continued to innovate and create gorgeous new designs while supporting the same group of artisans and retaining the fair trade ethos which has always been important to Azeti.

These products are made in India from 100% recycled aluminium, saving 90% of the energy when compared to using new aluminium from bauxite.

The spent aluminium products are melted down and poured into moulds created in sand - this is a time-honoured tradition in this area of India.

Once cooled, the sand mould is removed, the aluminium is polished and the enamel is applied by hand. Finally a food safe lacquer is applied. 

The supplier in Northern India was established by two brothers in 1992 and now employs over 100 men and women on permanent contracts all working in-house.

Nobody under 18 is employed and men and women are paid the same. In addition, and unusually for India, sick pay, paid breaks and contributions to children's education are part of the system here.

Safe for cold foods.

Not dishwasher safe.

Customers are advised not to display these products on window sills or in conservatories as colours may fade in direct sunlight.

 

We are a small home based business.

We keep all stock at home, so when you place an order, we don't have to travel to collect or package your items. It's all done in our home office.

We package the majority of our goods in recycled plastic mailing bags. Originally we started doing this to protect against rainwater, but now it means you have the option to disinfect the package when it arrives in your home.

We have been strictly observing the government's advice and have been socially distancing - staying in apart from for essential trips - since 16 March.

As far as we can be sure, nobody who lives in or has visited our home has been ill since the outbreak hit the UK.

We use the Royal Mail and very occasionally Parcelforce for deliveries. We have a "Drop & Go" account so we don't have to wait in line or get within 2 metres of anyone when we post out your goods. As long as our local post offices are open, and we remain well, we will get your orders out. Like a lot of essential services, the Royal Mail is under pressure with staff self-isolating, so your parcel may not arrive as quickly as you would normally expect, None of this is normal, but we'll get through it together.

Artisans and producers in low income countries rely on fair trade to support their families. Fair trade has helped build some resilience into the communities we help in the form of better hygiene and sanitation, better nutrition and healthcare support. Most of the countries where our goods originate have banned exports and imports to limit the spread of the virus. This means workers are unable to get their work to us, and in some cases their workshops are closed. Our suppliers are continuing to pay for and place orders to keep their producers going through what we hope is a very short-lived period in our lives. In contrast, high street fashion companies in the UK have cancelled $1.5bn in orders with garment factories in Bangladesh, putting thousands of low paid women out of work.

The need for fair trade has never been clearer. Thank you for your support and stay safe and well.
