you for visiting our web site. We are a very unusual
fair trade company bringing in hard to find affordable,
products from many parts of the world for you to
use in school. The vast majority are genuine artefacts
made by indigenous craftspeople who have no knowledge
of current UK & EU safety regulations. Obviously,
we choose items which we believe are safe, and have
been doing so for over 30 years, but I would like
to stress that all our products are supplied as
works of art and are for display purposes only.
You must decide if an artefact is suitable for children
to handle or not. Please place an order with us
only if you accept these terms. Thank you again,
regards, Peter Wallin
