Namaste UK hold a special place in our hearts here at Accessory Fair, as they were the first fair trade supplier we bought from when we started the company. In fact, for the first year we were in existence, Namaste were the only brand we stocked!
The good folks from Skipton are still our largest supplier, providing us with superb fair trade Namaste bags (handbags, messengers, shoulder bags and shoppers), as well as fantastic scarves, hats, bracelets, necklaces and winter woolies.
What Namaste UK say about themselves…
Namaste was inspired by a journey through India in 1995 on reconditioned ex-Indian Army Enfield Bullet motorbikes. Founder Sam Brummitt, his sister and her partner travelled to India for a quick visit that turned into a six month adventure. Sleeping under the stars most nights by the side of the road they quickly developed a passion for this most amazing sub-continent and especially the warm, friendly and hospitable people they met. One day in Rajasthan, they got into conversation with the owner of a small textile business who suggested they went back home to England and started a business. Today Ganpat is a lifelong friend and is still one of Namaste's key suppliers.
Lives were changed by this chance encounter and a business was started which was named Namaste after the greeting which was so often extended to them. Some say it simply means "Hello," but a better translation, perhaps, is "I greet the spirit within you."
At the core of Namaste UK are our suppliers with whom we work very closely. Our criteria for passing them as fair trade producers, and hence suitable business partners, are based on international fair trade guidelines.

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.
November and December are the busiest time for our postal service and orders which are sent First Class, as all your All's Fair purchases will be, can take several days to arrive instead of the usual 1-2 days. Therefore we recommend you order as early as possible so you can be sure you get your items in plenty of time for you to wrap them up.
The Royal Mail's last day for guaranteed Christmas delivery is Friday 20 December 2019. Any orders you place with us on or before 19 December will be posted First Class and should get there before Christmas.
Customers outside of the UK will have their order shipped by Royal Mail's International Standard service. The cost for delivery depends on the weight of the goods you are purchasing, and ranges from £2 to £20 - you can see the exact cost of shipping in the Shopping Basket before you checkout.
We recommend you order before 30 November if you require any items for Christmas delivery outside the UK.
We are confident that you will be delighted with your purchase, however to ensure that you are completely satisfied Accessory Fair offers a "no quibbles" 14-day returns policy.
We realise that our normal 14-day returns period isn't much use if you're buying a Christmas present for someone a month before the big day. What if they don't like it, or it doesn't fit??
For this reason we have extended our standard returns period for Christmas gifts, and you now have until the 8th January 2019 to return any gifts that you have purchased.
And don't forget that this is a 'no quibbles' guarantee - so if, for any reason, it isn't suitable, feel free to send it back to us for a refund or replacement.
