By Hand

By Hand is a family-run fair trade organisation that aims to promote the beautiful fair trade jewellery, ethical gifts, eco-friendly bags and other handicrafts produced by the highly talented craftsmen and women on the islands of Bali and Java. Based in Leeds, By Hand works closely with producers in Bali and Java to help them develop their businesses. By importing their products to the UK, By Hand provides a much-needed market to the marginalised producers in small communities in Indonesia. By Hand is committed to fair trade and ethical principles and is currently in the process of applying for membership with the British Association of Fair Trade Shops. By Hand believes that beautiful products should not come at the cost of exploitation and actively promotes fair trade practices, both in Indonesia and here in the UK. Furthermore, By Hand is committed to running a sustainable and environmentally friendly business. Products are imported by boat to keep the impact on the environment to a minimum (= less emissions than driving a car for a few miles) and are sent to customers in recycled or eco-friendly packaging. By Hand believes that fair trade should not just be a statement; it should be a way of life. Visit www.by-hand.co.uk now and help us make a difference.
