New for Autumn/Winter 2010, these beautiful ceramics from Peru are handmade using Andean clay.
Fair Do’s purchased the remaining stock of these ceramics from a small fair trade business in the UK that has now closed down. Priced very reasonably, one of these pieces could make the perfect affordable addition to any home.

These stunning necklaces and earrings are made from tagua nut which comes from a palm tree indigenous to Colombia. Also known as vegetable ivory, ivory-nut palms are sustainably grown and eco-friendly. Tagua stimulates the economies of South America, provides an alternative to cutting down rainforest for farming, and helps prevent animals from being killed for their ivory. The seeds are dried, dyed and sliced before being assembled into beautifully crafted pieces of organic jewellery.
Taguabella jewellery is made by Kazuri and we have recently started stocking them at Fair Do’s. Come and see the full range on display in the shop at very reasonable prices.
Fair Trade Egypt
We have recently made links with Fair Trade Egypt – an organisation that strives to empower artisans all over Egypt. Fair Do’s have added their beautiful jewellery, scarves, and many more products to our stock. This is the first time Fair Do’s have directly imported stock, bringing us ever closer to the producers themselves.
New line in baby clothing
This season we have an exciting new line at Fair Do’s. We have stocked babygros and clothing for some time, but this is our first range from a french fair trade company called Ideo.
Ideo are committed to fair trade, choosing small producers in developing areas and paying them a fair wage. They also use only ecological materials with a known origin to make their clothing.
These babygros are made with 100% organic cotton so not only are they ethically made and stylish, they’re kind to your baby’s skin too.
Pop into the shop to browse through this lovely new collection that is very reasonably priced. You can find out more about the principles of Ideo at their website – www.ideocollection.com
Welsh language cards – all the way from Africa!
Fair Do’s are now offering a selection of Welsh language handmade cards from Rwanda. We have 3 designs – two proclaiming Happy Birthday (Penblwydd Hapus) and one Congratulations (Llongyfarchiadau). These beautiful handmade cards cost just £3.00 each.
The cards are made by an organisation called Cards from Africa, who provide employment for many 18-25 year olds living in Rwanda who were made orphans as a result of disease or the 1994 genocide. They make these beautiful cards by repulping waste paper from offices. Often these young people are responsible for their younger brothers and sisters, so making these cards provides a significantly better life for them all.
This is not only a first for Fair Do’s – we have never before stocked Welsh language cards handmade in the South – but a first for Rwanda too. They told us it was an honour to be creating their first Welsh cards for us!
Cardiau Cymraeg – yr holl ffordd o Affrica
Mae Siopa Teg/Fair Do’s bellach yn cynnig detholiad o gardiau Cymraeg wedi ei gwneud â llaw o Rwanda. Mae gennym 3 cynllun (gweler isod) – dau yn dweud Pen-blwydd Hapus ac un yn dweud Llongyfarchiadau.
Gwneir y cardiau gan fudiad o’r enw Cards from Africa, sy’n cyflogi nifer o bobl 18 -25 oed sy’n byw yn Rwanda a wnaed yn amddifaid o ganlyniad i glefydau neu’r hil-laddiad yn 1994. Maen nhw’n gwneud y cardiau hyfryd hyn drwy ailgylchu papur gwastraff o swyddfeydd. Yn aml bydd y bobl ifanc hyn yn gofalu am frodyr a chwiorydd ifancach, felly mae’r gwaith o wneud y cardiau hyn yn gallu gwella ansawdd eu bywydau yn sylweddol.
Mae hyn nid yn unig yn ‘gyntaf’ i Siopa Teg/Fair Do’s – dydyn ni ddim wedi cadw cardiau Cymraeg wedi eu gwneud â llaw yn y De – ond i Rwanda hefyd. Maen nhw wedi dweud wrthym ei fod yn anrhydedd iddyn nhw greu eu cardiau cyntaf Cymraeg ar ein cyfer ni!
