With over 20 years fairtrade experience, working extensively with craftspeople of India and Nepal, Bazaar brings colourful gifts, clothing, accessories and amazing embroidered textiles. Our regular extended trips to India allow us time to design our own products and clothing and be present during the many sampling and manufacturing processes. Our belief that fair and ethically traded goods should be sustainable through business and our love of traditional techniques and handmade goods leads us to small workshops, many of whom we have worked with for over 20 years. Find new products, our own designs and some old favorites at Bazaar.
