We are passionate about fair trade practice and individuality. We like to offer our own exclusive designs in our online shop.

We like to offer “Something Different”
We’re passionate about fair trade practice and believe in buying fairly and selling fairly. Our goods are ethically sourced and produced for us in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos & Myanmar, where our designs are manufactured by small cooperatives of skilled craftspeople.
Our designs are individual, flowing and easy to wear. We use beautiful natural fabrics and where possible organic dyes.
We are now stocking linen clothing made in Italy. We have also had designs produced locally in the UK, especially our range of up-cycled vintage clothing, This is a range that we plan to develop in the coming months.
We source in South East Asia where we like to work closely with hill tribes, local village people and small co-operatives. They work with us to produce beautiful and unique products. We have worked with them for some time and have built up a good relationship over the years.
Traditional skills are used by the Hmong and Yao village craftsmen in Northern Thailand to produce textiles that are hand woven. Due to this process, there may be irregularities in both the weave and dye which add to the beauty and individuality of the fabric.
