“The Expo has been an excellent opportunity for Sawang Boran: the few silks I sent (just 6 samples) did some of the talking quite persuasively. The interest and questions they generated (faithfully and articulately passed on to me by the EFF’s representative) gave me a sense that there is a future for traditional silk artisans’ skills. I was amazed to receive, within days, a UK designer’s request for a first order of our silk… even without my being there to give all the information I normally provide!” Rosanne Trottier, Sawang Boran, Represented at SOURCE Expo 2010

We know it can be costly and difficult for suppliers, particularly smaller and fairtrade organisations to travel to the UK to represent your organisation if you do not have a UK agent. Therefore this year we are running a SOURCING AGENT scheme.

As the number of suppliers that we can support in this way is limited, it is designed for suppliers which do not already have agents or representatives in the UK or are unable to travel to the UK to represent themselves.
