I love the variety of jewellery sold by the Fair Trade Store. The earrings and necklaces are beautiful. It's great to buy from a company that supports a fair deal for the people who made these lovely items. Highly recommended.

I was made aware that the owner of this Business regularly travels to personally meet the people who make the products he sells . A rare demonstration of a commercial business embedding the real core ethical values of fair trade into it's very DNA . I was surprised how contemporary and stylish the product range is .
