After 8 years of trading, we have now closed. We have had fun over the years, sourcing interesting, fairly-produced goodies, and bringing them to New Zealand for you to share. We have enjoyed being able to support artisans and their families in developing countries, together with our NZ charity partners.
However, Covid has changed things for everyone, and we now find we are unable to continue trading. In the last 2 years it has been difficult to purchase goods of acceptable quality and receive them in a timely manner, difficult (near impossible during lockdowns) to arrange shipping and manage the huge price increases, just to get goods to NZ.

What is Fair Trade?

The World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO)

...has created ten principles that Fair Trade Organisations must follow in their day-to-day work, and carries out monitoring to ensure these principles are maintained. These principles include:

  • Payment of a Fair Price
  • Child Labour Welfare
  • Working Conditions

The WFTO Principles of Fair Trade

This helps:

  • prevent human trafficking
  • people rebuild their lives
  • the vulnerable & marginalized
  • in caring for widows and orphans
  • supporting cultural craft heritage

It’s ethical, it's sustainable, it's dignified and it's simply good development. It supports the poor in their own enterprise and makes us all a little more connected.
