Bringing fair trade to a fair trade village

When we brought our first World Textile Day West to Saltford in 2014, we had no idea what a great venue we’d found.

Our hosts the Saltford Community Association couldn’t be more enthusiastic.

And as a bonus, Saltford prides itself in being a ‘fair trade village’ – a perfect fit for our fair trade ethos.
