How we work with our producers

  • In addition to established fair trade producers we will only buy products from small family run workshops that share the same passion about fair trade that we do.
  • When we are looking for new producers we will initially look for existing co-operatives, NGO's, groups working within community initiatives, charities and marginalised workers ‐ producers who aim to have a positive impact on society as a whole.
  • We believe in the empowerment of local communities and are prepared to pay a premium for a product to support this.
  • When taking on new producers we are looking for long-term relationships so both we and our supplier can plan for future growth.
  • All producers must be completely transparent in terms of commercial operations.
  • We will fully inspect each new producers ensuring that they conform to all fair trade guidelines and are intending to work on these at all times.
  • We aim that the producers should receive an income that improves their standard of living. At the very minimum it will be the rate set out by their co-operative or a fair rate based on the cost of the materials and time involved in the production of the goods.
  • We will always pay at least 50% upfront for all orders placed by us to our producers and will always forward extra when needed and pay the balance of the order as soon as we receive it.
  • All artisans will be paid equally regardless of race, caste or gender.
  • We will use, wherever possible, local traditionally made materials, cutting down its carbon footprint and keeping work within the local community. We are prepared to pay a premium for this if necessary.
  • We will visit producers at least once a year to give feedback and to discuss any quality and distribution problems we might have and to work on new designs.
  • We will use this yearly visit to discuss Fair Trade policies and to plan where we can improve in the coming year.
  • We work closely with producers on the development of new products that will help our relationship with them to continue and grow. In doing so we take care to respect the traditional designs and techniques and value input from our producers.
