Re-Launch and Behind The Scenes at The Little Fair Trade Shop


Hello and Assalaam Alaikum fair trade friends and supporters.

It's seems like a very long seven years ago when I first decided I wanted to start my own fair trade business. With much trepidation and excitement, tears of joy and laughter, here I am re-launching The Little Fair Trade website.


I am truly blessed to fulfil a life time ambition and am humbled that the Fair Trade industries finest pioneers and actors have supported my work in Dubai and the United Arab Emirates.

It's been a wonderful learning curve, I'm still learning!

Please enjoy the behind the scenes to our re-launch.

The list is long so I'll keep it short and sweet.

Sincere regards and best wishes to all my Fair Trade producers who supported me when I had nothing.
