Earth Squared started some 17 years ago after founder, Alison Henderson, returned from two years’ volunteering in social projects in Guatemala. Passionate about social justice and with a head for business, Alison wanted to start a fair trade business with an emphasis very much on design and quality.
Scouring the globe for potential suppliers, Alison decided to focus on Vietnam which, at the time, was struggling to export overseas, and after some trial and error, Alison was delighted to forge a relationship with a supplier who shared Alison’s vision for distinctive, ethical products to appeal to mainstream consumers. As a result we are able to combine our contemporary designs with their fantastic craftsmanship.
All of our products are designed by us with the end consumer very much in our thoughts.
