Fair trade greetings

I’m all for a bit of ethical trading. I like the warm, cosy glow of self-rightousness when I dunk my digestive into some fair trade coffee or bite into a piece of fruit from a farm collective.

For an industry that buys in so much product from the Far East, we haven’t seen much in the way of ethical product in greetings yet. That might be about to change with these fair trade designs from Thinking Gifts. The cards are hand-made by local craftspeople from Mauritius and Bangladesh and feature either real pressed flowers or handwoven fabric.

Not only are the cards a great product in heir own right but they are bang on trend for all things eco and ethical.
