Shared Earth works with over 30 producers from around the world to bring you fairly traded and ethical products, gifts and world crafts including our range of recycled tin vehicles by Bezalila, a co-operative of artisans in Madagascar.
Shared Earth began as a small shop on Goodramgate, York, which opened in October 1986, and now has seven shops to its name. Shared Earth builds and maintains partnerships with producers and disadvantaged people in developing countries which helps to keep traditional skills alive, whilst benefiting local communities and building bridges, regardless of race, religion or culture.
At iapetus we spend a lot of time carefully sourcing and picking the pieces we offer. Everything you see has been crafted to a high standard, ethically sourced, be that made in the UK or fairly traded from our International artisans, and lastly is quirky and unusual - something which should surprise, delight and inspire you to gift buying greatness!
