New Overseas Traders

New Overseas Traders, a Fair Trade company since 1987, sources, selects and imports a range of gifts and household items from India, all shipped by sea in full containers. Most of the lines have an element of re-use or recycling. Behind every product is a story of local people driving their local economy. All goods are manufactured by hand, aiding local employment in India and with minimal use of electricity. They visit their groups of talented craftspeople two or three times a year. The groups include small family firms, co-operatives, NGO trusts for the marginalized and groups benefiting the physically and mentally challenged.

reflections from a continent

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”- Jawaharial Nehru. “Travel only with thy equals or thy betters; if there are none, travel alone.”-The Dhammapada “People take different roads seeking fulfilment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.”-Dalai Lama XIV
