Namaste is still a relatively small business with a strong ethical policy at its core. We aim to buy from small scale producers who use largely natural materials and traditional techniques to produce beautiful and interesting articles. All Namaste products are fairly traded. We believe that the best way to reduce poverty is through trade.
Namaste seeks to support marginalised small producers and we aim to help workers to move from income insecurity to economic self sufficiency. The manufacture of goods for Namaste generates income for the local community and we hope that these benefits should enrich the quality of life of the local community.
