Earth Squared started some 17 years ago after founder, Alison Henderson, returned to Scotland 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. 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, Earth Squared are able to combine contemporary designs from Scotland with fantastic craftsmanship and ethical production.
Earth Squared is based in the market town of Haddington, near Edinburgh.
