Did you know that Cambridge has it's very own Fair Trade Business that works directly with small producers in developing countries?
One World is Enough, on Bridge Street, has been working in partnership for the last twelve years with small family and community based businesses in Rajasthan, India, the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, the north of Thailand and Bali, Java and Lombok in Indonesia.
They design and source their very own collections of men's, ladies' and children's clothes using local fabrics and printing techniques then give the clothes a contemporary cut to create a fusion of East meets West.
As they work with small producers, all their clothes are made in small runs and each month they bring out new lines, so they always have something fresh and exciting.
Peter Harlow, who founded One World is Enough with his wife Laura after they spent a year travelling around Asia, goes out to visit all his large network of suppliers every year to work on new collections of clothes and gifts.
"It is very rewarding to see how Fair Trade works to improve living standards", says Peter, "it really does work, not just for our producers, but the benefits of fair trade are felt throughout the communities that we work in".
