About Us

We have been very active in our local community in promoting fair trade issues over the last ten years. Much of our work, outside of running two busy gift shops, has involved work with schools, providing resources and support to the Cheshire Education Development Centre, churches, community groups and supporting our local city council adopt Fair Trading policies. Our roots and inspiration come from the And Albert Foundation project founded by David Murden, whose vision is to actively support craftspeople within their village communities particularly in West Africa and Asia.
