Namaste

Namaste are dedicated to sourcing beautiful fairly traded products from the far corners of the world, embracing traditional artisan skills. Ensuring products where possible are made from environmentally friendly, sustainable and recycled materials.

In 1995, in search of some adventure, founder Sam Brunmmitt, flew to Kathmandu, Nepal with a round the world ticket. After an inspirational trek to Mount Everest base camp, followed by 6 months circumnavigating the Indian Subcontinent on re-conditioned ex Indian Army Enfield Bullets and sleeping under the stars at the side of the road, the idea for the business slowly developed. Fuelled by a conversation one day in Rajasthan with Ganpat, a owner of a small textile business, now a lifelong friend and a key supplier, suggested Sam come back home and started a business.

In 1995, in search of some adventure, founder Sam Brunmmitt, flew to Kathmandu, Nepal with a round the world ticket. After an inspirational trek to Mount Everest base camp, followed by 6 months circumnavigating the Indian Subcontinent on re-conditioned ex Indian Army Enfield Bullets and sleeping under the stars at the side of the road, the idea for the business slowly developed. Fuelled by a conversation one day in Rajasthan with the owner of a small textile business, a now lifelong friend and a key supplier, Ganpat suggested Sam come back home and started a business.

 

Starting a business meant earning a living while putting something back into such a beautiful and wonderful part of the world and that's exactly what happened. Namaste, translated as 'I greet the spirit within you' was found in 1997.
