I’m a photographer who loves blogging, all things vintage and handmade and light-filled happy, beautifully simple images. And I’m a little bit obsessed by Blythe, deer (especially vintage bambi) and owls too.

Trading for Development demonstrates how ethical business practices and high quality fashion can help to support some of the poorest communities in the world. Linking the producers in these communities with leading fashion houses and top fashion universities, we encourage the growth and appreciation of traditional skills, and promote the marketing of fairly traded products worldwide.

Our products often use traditional craft techniques, as well as natural fibres and dyes that minimise damage to the environment.

Prints & Cards
by Susan Isaac
Susan Isaac is a Cardiff born artist, now based in Nottinghamshire.
‘The placing of elements is fundamental to my work. I’m seeking a perspective that projects outward as if to engulf the viewer – I want you to feel tipped into the painting.’
My work has long been inspired by a love for geometric design and Japanese Illustration, sketching and painting since I was a child I carry a sketchbook in my pocket 24/7.
I like to think of my Brooch designs as tiny portable works of art, walking with their owners up and down high streets, camping out at festivals or simply reaching parts of the world I never will.

by Jo Davies
There is a humour in Jo’s work, an element of the ridiculous, but also an element of sophistication. Her work emulates this coupling of humour with sophistication and tries to exist where these two meet, creating an elegant style that sometimes teeters on the edge of vulgarity.
The exploration of clay is probably the most important aspect of Jo’s work. As she sees it, an object that she has made is best when it crystallises the liquidity of clay in the final ceramic. The glazes Jo use are chosen because they enhance this sense of water and flow created in the object’s making on the throwing wheel. This work is not an allegory and does not have a scripted narrative; it is instead the result of an intuitive enquiry into clay, using a visual language that is gradually unfolding with each piece made.

by Ikuko Iwanoto
Ikuko makes exquisite cups and other objects for a bizarre tea ceremony. They suggest the everyday, the ordinary, but are in fact extra-ordinary . They are the vehicle to make visible an invisible, microscopic world. A world of intricacy and detail, of mathematical pattern and organic chaos, of beauty and repulsion.
History Mugs & Stationary
by Cole of London
