From The Source is an independent business based in Skipton, North Yorkshire that works directly with producers in India and Nepal. Inspired by travels in Asia we have been trading since 2008, starting off from a small beginning selling scarves and textiles at festivals and markets. We now have an established retail outlet and website, and supply wholesale to shops around the UK.
Fair trade is core to our business, and we are proud of the fact that we have established long term relationships based on trust and respect with some fantastic suppliers. Over the years we have have become friends with some truly inspirational people, and many of our products are made by small family businesses that have only a few employees. We work hard with them to develop products that enable their businesses to grow alongside ours, and for them to be able to offer continuous employment.
We work closely with suppliers in Nepal to import a large range of Tibetan cotton fair trade bags and wool hats, gloves and headbands. From India, especially Rajasthan, we work with local suppliers to source our collections of block print clothing and colourful textiles, gifts and crafts.
