Hello from The Enclosure of the Sun,
Here's a little information about us, our ethics and what we are trying to do.
The Enclosure of the Sun is family run shop. We are in Glastonbury, Somerset, UK. If you ever have the chance to visit Glastonbury, you can find us in The Gauntlet, just off Glastonbury high street.
We are a small business with a very big dream. Our shop was just an idea in January 2020 and now its here. A huge majority of our in store stock is imported directly from Luxor, Egypt. We work with artists and families in Egypt to bring you amazing hand carved Stone Gods and Goddesses as well as many other beautiful things. We do this as fair trade and ethically as possible. With the hope in the future to get our own fair trade stamp. In Egypt there is a lot of hunger and poverty, so rather than buying from the already rich. We wanted to give work to families, so we know we are making a difference to peoples lives. We have made some wonderful friends and been so lucky, to be given the opportunity to bring such beautiful things from Egypt to the UK.
Apart from a small amount of stock both online and in our shop. We have also sourced other items that already have a fair trade, eco friendly or recycled stamp. Most of these items can currently only be found on our online shop.
Thank you for reading,
Blessings to you from Cara, Tom and Lou xx
