Our Philosophy and Beliefs

My long term ambition has always been to make a difference to people's lives and work towards a sustainable society. I had become disillusioned and disenchanted with our throwaway society which has made me look at ways in sourcing products and materials to reverse this trend.

I am conscious on how our daily lives impact on the environment but you shouldn't have to compromise your style or give up little luxuries, as we believe ethical can be stylish.

We can all jump on the bandwagon when it comes to ethical trading and we all have different interpretations, but I believe a move in the right positive direction is better than no move at all.

I feel trade should be fair to both the people who manufacture our products and the environment and all these considerations are included in the way Arte Ideas do business. Arte Ideas are committed to improving the impact on the wider community and the environment.

Arte Ideas provides a platform for an inspiring selection of eco-friendly products but also showcases local designers who care about our planet.
