Georgie & Simon visit Indian Suppliers

Thursday, 19 February 2009

Georgie Hopkins and Simon Whitehead, owners of Myakka are currently visiting their suppliers in the Rajasthan region of India.


“It is vital that we visit suppliers to look through new samples and discuss new product ideas,” explains Simon.  Myakka have worked with their main furniture supplier for over 6 years and have a superb relationship.  "We are currently working through samples of new lines to be launched this Autumn which include new pieces for the Mallani, Thakat and Khimsar ranges," continues Simon.


The values behind Myakka stand for nature, honesty, friendship and fairness – all the qualities that most people today want to bring into their home.  These are also the qualities that they look for in their suppliers. “We want to ensure that we source ethically produced products where ever possible and that the production processes are seamless and transparent,” adds Simon.


Simon and Georgie make regular trips to see overseas suppliers and during their visits they will review some fair trade projects with a view to offering future donations.  Just last month Myakka donated £5,000 to SKSN, a school for physically challenged children from rural areas of Rajasthan.


For more information about individual products, materials and Myakka’s fair trade promise, go to or visit the Myakka Warehouse Outlet in Somerset.
