FREE ENTRY to our exhibition and sale of fair trade textiles

2022 will see us back in Saltford with our much-missed programme of entertaining and informative talks – plus the fantastic Saltford Community Café.

Bringing fair trade to a fair trade village

When we brought our first World Textile Day West to Saltford in 2014, we had no idea what a great venue we’d found. Our hosts the Saltford Community Association couldn’t be more enthusiastic. And as a bonus, Saltford prides itself in being a ‘fair trade village’ – a perfect fit for our fair trade ethos. Here are some pics from World Textile Day West in Saltford.
