Siesta

Hall: Hall 4 Stand: 4C65

Siesta is a Fair Trade company importing clothing, accessories, arts, crafts, incense and musical instruments from around the world. We have been trading for over 30 years and during that time we have established a trusted relationship with our suppliers, many of whom have become close friends. We are proud to be a member of BAFTS (The British Association of Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers).

The vast majority of our products are hand made by skilled artisans some working on their own, others working in a small family workshop, and a small number working in larger production units.
  We hope that by trading with our producers we are helping them to achieve economic self-sufficiency, keep their traditional skills, crafts and expertise alive, whilst simultaneously bringing to our customers the skills and crafts of other cultures.
