Decorator's Notebook baskets - Kenya 10

The word “ethical” means different things to different people and there isn’t yet a fairtrade logo that applies to handicrafts, as there is for products like tea and bananas. So, what being a social business means to us at Decorator’s Notebook?


We believe social entrepreneurship and job creation are more sustainable ways to break the cycle of poverty than pity-purchasing and charity hand-outs.


Women will spend up to 90% of their wages on health, nutrition and education. Female breadwinners gain social status and self-esteem.


We partner with enterprises that uphold the WFTO’s 10 Principals of Fair Trade and offer long-term financial stability through fairly-paid employment.


We reject mass-production and seek out products made in independent, family-run workshops that employ people from the local community.


Natural raw materials are responsibly-grown and, where possible, locally-sourced. Whenever there is a recycled alternative, we will consider it.


By learning about the cultural traditions of the groups we work with, we create designs that showcase local handicraft skills, materials and heritage.


We don’t buy from a supplier one season and abandon them the next. Our timeless collections embody simple beauty that never goes out of fashion.


An ethical purchase that is never used or badly-made is still wasteful. We never lower our standards, so you get full enjoyment from everything you buy.


Read the story behind every piece to discover a meaningful human connection to the things you buy. We promote the artisans who make us what we are.


We battle the underlying causes of social inequality by supporting artisan training programs in literacy, healthcare, money-management and legal rights.

The Good Life Experience 2017 - by Decorator's Notebook 1

The Good Life Experience 2017

I usually think of festivals as a high summer activity, either lolling around on golden evenings drinking cold beer and slathering on the sun cream, or wading through mud and sweating inside a waterproof jacket when it’s far too warm to wear one. But when the regular festival season is over and the nights draw in,…

House Tour: A Seaside Hideaway with Global Touches

Holiday homes so often lack personality and character, so it’s lovely to see some unique, quirky touches, from suzani textiles and vintage floral fabrics to antique…
