The Leigh-on-Sea Fairtrade Town Campaign is always on the look out for wholesale suppliers that provide attractive Fairtrade clothing – that we think would appeal to the many independent boutiques we have in our town.

We know that you need to buy at wholesale prices to make supplying Fairtrade products to your customers cost effective,

We have recently been talking with Quail who provide beautiful Ethical, Fairtrade and organic ladies fashion designed and made in the UK.
