We are a family-owned independent fair trade gift shop based in Yorkshire.

Selling fairly traded gifts, clothing, and groceries from around the world, we try hard to make sure the items we sell are sustainable and ethically sourced.

Sustainable and fairly traded fashion

Our clothing comes from all around the world and is all hand-made with absolutely no child labour anywhere in the process.

We source our clothing from trustworthy suppliers who have been dealing with the same families of artisans for decades, ensuring job security and resulting in fantastic products. Artisans receive upfront payments for supplies and are paid in full before anything is shipped out.

Gifts for every occasion

We source all our gifts from ethical importers who care about the people who make the items. The majority of our home and gift items are from BAFTS– or WFTO-registered suppliers, so you can be confident that the items we sell were made with no exploitative labour.

Tea & Coffee

One of our newer arrivals at Near & Fair is tea and coffee. It’s something we have wanted to stock for some time but space constraints had prevented us. Our recent transfer to a much larger retail unit in Hull’s Trinity Market has now made it possible, and hopefully the small selection we are starting out with will grow to include not just more brands of ethical teas and coffees but other grocery items as well. Watch this space!

It wouldn’t be a gift shop without chocolate. We have an amazing selection of Divine chocolate here at Near & Fair and are in the mindset that once you try Divine you’re hooked. Divine is the only Fairtrade chocolate company where the farmers have a say in the business. Divine in 2013 decided to stop using palm oil in any of its products – better for the forest, better for wildlife and better for you! Divine celebrated 20 years of bringing us sublime chocolate in 2019. It’s high quality. It’s fairtrade. It’s eco-friendly. It’s Divine!

Fairness at our core

Subindu Garkhel, Fairtrade’s Senior Cotton and Textile Lead, said: ‘It is always the most vulnerable, lowest paid people in the fashion supply chain that are worst hit by shocks. Now is the time to build back better and pick sustainable fashion labels that directly boost the incomes of farmers and workers who make them.
