The Story

At The Fair Trader, every product has a unique story behind it, and every purchase helps empower communities with economic and associated social challenges.

Browse through sustainable jewelry made from recycled bombshell casings in Cambodia, ceramics adorned with art by Indigenous Australians, hand-knitted organic cotton baby blankets from Bangladesh, cashmere scarves from Nepal, and vibrant homewares made by refugees in Tanzania.

We absolutely believe in the power of Fair Trade to reduce poverty and create change.

Our collection of ethically made fashion, homewares and gifts are sourced from organisations that support the principles of Fair Trade, including paying workers fairly, ensuring that working conditions are safe, and providing financial and social support to producer communities.

Our goal is to give these communities a retail platform to showcase their artisan products and give each community an opportunity to develop their skills and gain freedom from economic hardship. 

The products we offer are made from natural and upcycled materials. Each piece is handmade, individual and designed to be treasured. Our producers embrace slow, sustainable practices in order to create products that are timeless and beautiful and to ensure minimal environmental impact.

The level of craftsmanship and beauty found in our products will amaze you. The next time you’re looking for something special to gift a loved one, you will be sure to find the perfect gift within our treasure trove of artisan-made and fairly traded goods.
