Our aim is to help people in remote corners of the globe keep their traditional techniques and artistry alive – from stunning paintings and ethical clothing to delightful organic items such as soap, tea and coffee – in a strange land brings you non-mass produced, luxuriously handmade fair trade products to suit the modern home.
In addition to the quality of craftsmanship that we have on offer, each item has been carefully selected as a work of art in its own right and also has a unique story to tell. What’s more, our product range is a UK exclusive, so you can count on your purchases being a mark of originality.
What we do
In a strange land takes care to research the traditions of the areas we source from to find craft skills that are in danger of being lost, as well as those that have stood the test of time. We meet all our suppliers in person so we can be certain that the communities we're working with are fairly paid. The difference between us and charity organisations such as Oxfam is that we are not after a donation to help feed impoverished people – our focus is on offering superb fair trade products from highly skilled artists in remote locations to the conscious consumer who is willing to spend a little more for top quality and ethical sourcing.
In a strange land offers free standard shipping on all orders over £80.
