Product details


Supplies of all goods are subject to availability. We may substitute products of equal or higher quality.


As we are continuously improving the design of our products, some specifications may vary slightly from descriptions in this catalogue.
All sizes are approximate and colours and patterns of natural products, like olive and rubber wood, may vary.

Fairly-traded products

It’s very important to Embrace to ensure producers are paid a fair price for their goods. That means we work hard to source fairly-traded products from the Middle East and all round the world.

You’ll see some of our products are described as Fair Trade and marked with the FairTrade Foundation’s FairTrade Mark, which is an internationally recognised logo used in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

You’ll also see we describe some items as ‘fairly-traded’ which means they are certified under other agreements, eg British Association of FairTrade Shops and Suppliers – BAFTS or the World Fair Trade Organisation - WFTO.  

If you have any questions on this, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
