Sapelle is an ethical business, therefore we respect our entire supply chain and our environment. We pay a fair price for all of our products and seek out those products that have been produced using environmentally friendly methods and practices. We pass on best practice between our partners, whether it’s where to source more sustainable materials or how to minimise environmental impact during production.
At our UK base, we believe in and practice fair pay for services and goods. We aim to reduce, reuse and recycle all of our materials, and minimise waste in every way that we can.
Our aim is to create a tangible and sustainable positive impact for communities around Africa. We believe that fair trade is the route to self-reliance and prosperity. Our business is founded on connecting makers of beautiful products with customers around the world who fall in love and buy them. By creating trade on this basis, we believe that we are cultivating a sustainable business model.
We’re in love with African design, culture and heritage, and we want to share it with the world. From handwoven textiles, to bold African print dresses, unique wooden ornaments, to beaded jewellery, we seek out the finest examples of African design fused with contemporary influence. Our mission is to bring something unique to your home and your wardrobe by celebrating African creativity.
