Fair Trade

Our Fair Trading Policy
We are proud members of the British Association of Fair Trade Shops (BAFTShttp://www.bafts.org.uk
Most of the Goods we provide have been hand picked by ourselves on our many recent trips to India, Thailand, Turkey, Spain and Indonesia. We have a policy of buying from small-scale producers and families and make sure we pay the price that they ask, a fair price. This gives the producers a much-needed source of income. We also ensure the working conditions and the environment is satisfactory before we buy. Many of the items we buy are made using recycled materials and are therefore environmentally friendly!
About Fair Trade
Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.  Fair Trade advocates the payment of a fairer price to producers which reflects the true cost of production as well as social and environmental standards. It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries, most notably handicrafts, coffee, cocoa bean, sugar, tea, bananas, honey, cotton, wine, fresh fruit, chocolate and flowers.
