Bindi Designs has been on hiatus whilst we, The Bindi Family, relocated to sunny Spain.
During this time we have been busy rebuilding our online shop and sourcing new products & connections with suppliers & manufacturers. Our main focus is for fair & direct trade, which helps to sustain local communities, artisans & crafts.
It is quite a process to work through the many options on offer when you are seeking fair & direct trade. With the growth of the internet there are more options, and lower prices than ever before! but of course this comes at a cost to the people actually making the products & a greater environmental impact too. As cottage based industry tries to keep up with factory based industry, it´s tougher than ever to compete. And you have to work much harder to source quality products at a fair price for all involved in the trading process.
We have continued our focus on Thailand & the incredible array of beautiful & unique artisan crafted products available there. In particular, Northern Thailand, where it is possible to work with various local business´ who work & trade with various Hill Tribes of the region. Fabric production is common in Hill Tribe communities, so many clothing designers & manufactures trade fabrics with the Hilltribes.
