The Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand have put together a guide to shopping Fair Trade gifts this Christmas. At this time of year, when consumerism is at it's peak, it is more important than ever to be mindful of the product choices and brands we choose to support.
Doing your research can be time consuming and so we appreciate the work the Fair Trade Association has put into this guide to ethical Christmas shopping for you. We are proud to be included in this ethical gift guide alongside some amazing brands doing great things to support artisans from all over the globe. We are sure you will find something for everyone in the family inside the Fair Trade Christmas guide.

Whatever it is, we do not like it one bit. Why? Because it is the artisan who will suffer.

One of the most common questions we get asked about regarding our Moses baskets is ~what sheets and stand will be the best fit?
We decided to put together this list of recommended products. They compliment your Moses basket and hopefully Bub has the ultimate in comfort (aiming for the ultimate sleep!).
This is one I feel the drive to write - to express how I am attempting to process the energy that is around us at this time and how it has led to me uncovering my own ignorance and naivety around white privilege and racism. From someone who shares in a business with principles around educating our children on diversity and breaking African stereotypes, I feel the need to share my experience facing these uncomfortable emotions in the hope that I can help others take the step to also challenge their own conditioning and programming.
We are so excited to have our baby moses basket and moses basket stand hand picked by Sarah Marie and Matty (of Gogglebox fame) to be included in their gender neutral nursery as they prepare to welcome baby Fahd into the world.
