Fairtrade at a fair price

Wherever possible the stock I buy for Rainbows is from Fair Trade and ethical suppliers, many of which are members of BAFTS (the british association for fair trade shops and suppliers) such as Nomads Clothing, Namaste, Gringo, Siesta crafts and Paper High.
My Suppliers often work directly with the producers and crafts people, ensuring that fair trade standards are met, the workers get paid a fair wage, have good working conditions and aren’t exploited. No children under 16 are employed in any factories and men and women are treated equally. Sometimes my suppliers help the smaller businesses to get going by paying for orders in advance thus preventing the producers from having to borrow money to make the order. Often the producers are small or family run businesses employing skilled crafts people who use techniques that have been passed down through  generations. This helps to keep traditional crafts alive whilst providing a stable income for the workers. Some of the larger producers are also able to support various charities or community projects in their area. 
Also, as my suppliers work directly with the producers it also cuts out big profits made by agents and middle men so that we can supply you, my customers, with beautiful fair trade goods at a fair price!

The Environment

We also try to lessen our environmental impact. Many of our products are made from sustainably sourced or recycled materials. Our suppliers encourage their producers to source raw materials locally and to use recycled packaging.
We stock a range of interesting gifts made from coconut shells and bamboo and we have stunning recycled aluminium enamelled table ware. We also have many eco friendly items that are skilfully hand carved from mango wood that is sustainably sourced and we stock various styles of clothing made from beautifully soft organic cotton.

A brief history

Rainbows itself has been going for a long time and has changed hands several times over the years.
I was a customer for many years and then worked in the shop for 3 years, before taking it over in February 2012 and saving it from closure. Since then I have made many changes to build it up to what it is today, and in March 2016 moved premises from the Folly Market to Pages Court.  We hope Rainbows will continue on with its new look now for many years to come!
