Trading Boundaries: Health & Safety

Please take the time to read the following update:

Although we were remaining optimistic, it is with heavy hearts that we’ve decided to temporarily close our showrooms and café with immediate effect. We feel this is the right thing to do to safeguard the health of not only everyone who shops with us but also our wonderful staff and their families.

Our website is bursting with wonderful products for you to browse and purchase online, so please take some time to have a look. We’re happy to facilitate ‘click and collect’ for local customers whilst adhering to strict social distancing protocols, otherwise please use our regular delivery options.

We are also looking at other ways to keep our loyal customers abreast of products and offers, so if you haven't already signed up to our mailing list please do so by using the link on our homepage so you stay up to date with news and developments. Our Facebook and Instagram feeds will also be busy so please like, comment and share so we can keep in touch.

Live Music & Events

Please note that all live music events until the end of May have been postponed. We continue to monitor the situation and have been in touch with all guests who have purchased tickets to any postponed events. We will announce revised dates as soon as possible so please bear with us during these extraordinary times and please be assured that any postponed concert will be rescheduled.

Support Independent Shops

We’d like to make a special request. If you decide to purchase any goods online rather than venturing out over the coming weeks, we urge you to consider looking at the websites of independent businesses such as ours. Large well known businesses will be able to weather this storm more easily than local, family run shops who may need your support now more than ever. So regardless of what it is you need, or where you live, please spend a few extra minutes searching for a company who really needs your support.

We hope you stay well and as unaffected by these unprecedented circumstances as possible!

Thank you all so much for your continued support!

Best Wishes & Love

Ethical Sourcing

Ever since our first buying trip to India in 1996 we have continued to personally source all our furniture, textile and jewellery products. This enables us to constantly check on the supply of wood and other natural materials together with working practices and conditions. We trust our suppliers in the same way that you can trust our diligence in ensuring ethical sourcing.

Our one off pieces of Indian furniture are either completely antique or upcycled using reclaimed wood. Typically this wood comes from old colonial era buildings that have been demolished and due to their age the wood has a beautiful natural patina. ‘Reclaim, Recycle, Reuse’ is the motto of one of our biggest suppliers. They have also developed ‘The Green Tree Project’ to promote tree plantation in India along with environmental awareness and education on this topic.

Our reproduction and contemporary furniture is only ever constructed from wood grown in managed forests. We do not purchase items made from newly harvested teak as a matter of policy.

Our textiles are generally sourced from small cottage industries which support hundreds of families in the rural desert areas of Rajasthan. These are skills that are passed down from generation to generation and are an integral part of many local economies.

For the last two years Trading Boundaries has been a supporter of The Sambhali Trust, an organisation that empowers, educates and supports women and children in the poorest communities in India. Some of the Sambhali students have now graduated from sewing school and we are committed to purchasing their products which are available to see in store. All proceeds of these sales go back into the charity. You can learn more about Sambhali by clicking here .

Suppliers who we met over 20 years ago have become life-long friends and we have seen their businesses develop over the years. We’ve also seen their children grow up and join their companies, as have ours - so the relationship goes forwards into future generations. We’re always happy to provide more information so if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
