About Us

Fair Trade


Weaving Hope only imports goods that are certified by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). In simple terms it means a guarantee that your hard earned cash is spent supporting the people who make the lovely things you buy, and the communities they live in.

We believe you should think whenever you buy "Is this really who I want to give my money to?" And if it isn't, if you don't like what they're doing, then don't.

We love what our money is doing in Sri Lanka: supporting women and families; contributing to community, health and education projects; buying bikes for workers who are otherwise without transport.

We are proud to be members of BAFTS - the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers - an association of members who want to encourage Fair Trade as a way of fundamentally chaning the status of producers in the developing world.  Find out more by going to the BAFTS webstite at www.bafts.org.uk
