Phoenician Glass Perfume Bottle

Exquisitely beautiful with a stunning story to match, this handcrafted recycled glass perfume bottle is a little piece of history. The creation of Hebron glass dates back to the 14th century. It's a tradition that's been passed down for generations along the west bank, and this Phoenician glass perfume bottle is handmade with recycled glass by artisans at one of only 2 glass blowing factories left in Hebron, Palestine.


Eat Your Hat Coffee Gift Set
The perfect Christmas gift idea for coffee-fans or ethical foodies, this Eat Your Hat Coffee Gift Set contains four bags of premium organic ground coffee, all with their own quirky tasting notes, and each is snugly packed in a rustic wooden presentation case. All coffees are fair trade, sustainable, organic, and sourced from ethical co-operatives and farmer groups around the world.


Wooden Beard Comb

The perfect Christmas stocking-filler for a bearded pal or a quirky gift for Movember, this vintage-inspired beard comb comes with its own hand-stitched leather pouch which is screen-printed with iconic statement moustache.


Red Bus
Our best-selling Red Bus – back for another season. Fair trade, traditional crafting, imaginative play, and timeless design come together to create this heirloom wooden toy. Expert Toy-Makers at Gospel House in Sri Lanka have designed these buses to last for generations. The Kingsway’ sign on the front is the location of Traidcraft HQ, where so many pioneering decisions in fair trade have been made.


Penny Farthing Wine Bottle Holder

The ideal gift for a wine lover or eco-warrior, this Penny Farthing Wine Rack has been sculpted and welded by heritage metalworkers at fair trade co-operative Noah's Ark in India. The artisans have used recycled metal, so this wine rack isn't only ethical to people — it's kind to the earth, eco-friendly, and truly original too.
