From a seedling...
Manumit Fair Trade was founded by husband and wife team in 2005, after the MAKEPOVERTYHISTORY campaign captured their imaginations. Shocked by "ethical" factories in Asia and born from the desire to help others and create an alternative and fairer way of doing business, Manumit is encouraging an ethical fashion which sets the trend for more trade than aid.
West goes South...
Our fantastic fair trade products include an array of beautiful fair trade fashion accessories, bags, scarves and jewellery. All of our products are designed in Britain and are handmade by fair trade producers in the developing world, who are members of the World Fair Trade Organisation and have been through a process to ensure they are working to fair trade principles. We work hard with these artisans and producers to ensure that our fabulous fair trade range holds true to their heritage and traditions, not only to the benefit of their local communities, but also to offer you the best in sustainable and ethical fashion accessories.
Original and ethical...
This considerate, fair trade approach gives Manumit an authenticity little seen on the high street, translating into original and unique designs which have a genuine story and substance, with an ethical foundation.
The growth of the fair trade movement has helped all of the artisans and co-operatives expand their exports, and Manumit are proud to be a part of their success. We will remain loyal to the principles of fair trade and the need to create a better World, by promoting mutually responsive trading relationships with small producers, all with the determination and courage to better their lives, and at the same time, providing a fantastic array of fair trade products.
