Mixy Fandino Ltd
We are promoting, developing and supporting Colombian artisans and their amazing work by commercialising their unique handmade jewellery and accessories through our distribution and retail channels in the UK. Our high-quality products are made with care and skill from natural, sustainable and highly wearable materials – totumo, tagua and cotton-. Also, we are working with sterling silver using the ancient technique of filigree and also we are working in the ancient art of Origami,which is the art of paper folding. Additionally, we have handbags and accessories made in Colombian leather but with an added piece of art - MOLA-. Mola is a decorative textile created in the tradition of Kuna Indians living on the Atlantic coast of Colombia. We help to sustain cottage industries and also preserve their authenticity and sustain the cultural legacy of Colombian crafts as a way of life. As a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers (BAFTS) www.bafts.org.uk since 2013 we ensure that work is guided by principles of mutual respect, social justice and equal partnership. We are working towards improving the living conditions of the producers and striving for better ethical trading practices, as well as paying fair prices to producers for their work. As a Fair Trade organisation we are spreading the word for “Fair Trade”. It is essential that consumers continue to see the differences and know the principles behind the concept of fair trade and why it is so important.
