Fair trade makes a big difference to the lives of millions of people in the developing world, not just in farming but in the handicrafts and gifts industries too. Fairwind has an amazing range of ethical gifts from all over the world, combining modern design with traditional skills. Their gifts are all beautifully made and reasonably priced, so I will certainly be doing my Christmas shopping with them again this year.
