A proud member of BAFTS Fair Trade Network, Siesta was started in 1983 by Chris and Les Harper selling handicrafts they’d picked up on their travels from Mexico and Guatemala. They now have a shop and wholesale business located in Canterbury & import a wide range of clothing, accessories, gifts and musical instruments.
Most of their suppliers are small family businesses that they have built up long-lasting relationships over 30 years. They try to ensure that raw materials come from renewable resources, many natural products such as wool and wood, and agree on prices (and pay for orders) in advance. They do not allow exploitation of child labour or gender discrimination.
We love their bright, colourful unique designs & their originality. Most of the textile are unique with differing colours, shapes and patterns, and the rainbow scarves & gloves we sell are a big hit each Winter!
