Jo Lawbuary and Purnendu Roy source goods from local co-operatives and small-scale producers in India, Bangladesh and beyond, to ensure every item in their store is fairly traded. There’s a good selection of Fairtrade and recycled homewares (organic bedlinen; embroidered cushions from Bangladesh; lamps and colanders made from recycled tin; disposable leaf plates made from sali leaves from forests in India), as well as wallhangings and clothes and accessories, including attractive silk scarves, camel-wool hats, baby alpaca gloves, and a range of bags much from cotton, leather, and recycled rice sacks. Ganesha also offers a wedding list service. There’s now a branch in Covent Garden. Branch 38 King Street, WC2E 8JT (7240 8068).

Ganesha is full of beautiful things for the home. They have a huge range of scarves and accessories and to make it even better it is ethically sourced
Love this shop - full of unique items unavailable elsewhere, all fair-trade productions sourced mostly from south Asia. Love the bollywood soundtrack they play and the CDs available, great postcards too. And the staff are wonderful - it's a small family business and the owners care about their ethical values and their staff and research and source everything personally. Great place! Great products!
Beautiful fair trade goods from all over the world. Specialist in Bollywood inspired items and some very unusual things you do not see anywhere else in london. A mecca for the ethically minded.
