As of today our ecommerce section is up and running, delivering unique, ethical gifts, clothing and accessories to your door in time for Christmas.
Our online boutique sells unusual homeware and gift items – all ethically sourced from far flung corners of the world. When buying from in-a-strange-land.com you can guarantee that your purchase has been responsibly and ethically sourced, allowing the producers to increase their income without adversely affecting their way of life.
The launch range features products sourced directly from artisans or established ethical trade companies in the South Western Chinese province of Yunnan. It includes hand woven scarves, bed spreads and other textiles, fair trade loose-leaf tea and intricate Tibetan paintings. Prices start from £9.
The aim is to approach ‘fair trade’ in a new way – by delivering desirable products which comply with a strict set of ethics whereby nobody is unfairly treated. Our mission is to buck the mass-market trend by making unique, beautiful, hand-crafted products readily available to the UK market.
“This is a hugely exciting time, not just for me but for the men and women I visit and source the items from. Just knowing that such beautiful products are available to buy with a completely clear conscious is massively reassuring. I already really feel part of the ‘ethical’ retail revolution.”Joseph Burns, Founder
