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.
