Tribes & Nations Fair Trade Store

Bringing Fairtrade coffee and tea to your kitchen, ethical gifts for your weddings and homewares of just provenance to your door!

Through this we hope to enable and support your Ethical and Just Life Style, while being a vocie for the poor through fair trade.

We are family business that was established in 2004. This came about after living in Tanzania for 5 years, with our then two small boys. It changed  our  thinking and style of living.

 We see poverty not just as a lack of income, but also a lack of choice and access to resources. Poverty also shows itself as lack of self-value (prostitution), promiscuity (HIV) and physical abuse (slavery). 

We also saw how a small change, such as paying a fair wage can bring about a big change to a person’s life.

It was Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. who said “before you finish eating breakfast in the morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world”. With that he reminded us that our much individualised western lives are still intimately connected with the people in our global village.

Our online fair trade store offers

  • a range of ethically sourced products
  • products of beauty and practicality,
  • friendly and efficient service, 
  • the 'T&N guarantee' of a FULL REFUND should your product be faulty in any way

Wherever possible our preference is for materials that rank high in sustainability -

We believe in Fair Trade, where people come before profit, where equality and fairness are a standard, all the while caring for the our one and only God given earth, and living as his disciple.

We see this section as the 'seed sower' section, where we give you the seeds of change to sow far and wide, and you never know the good and love it brings, BUT you do know

“Every action in our lives touches some chord that will vibrate in eternity “Edwin Hubbell Chapin

TRIBES AND NATIONS - enabling and encouraging people to live with others in mind, while crafting a life of meaning.




Follow your heart ..

“Never underestimate the power of the heart. When we are passionate about someone or something, few obstacles can defeat us. Our hearts can inspire greatness, sweep aside adversity, break new ground and draw others along with us.”  Patrick Lindsay

‘In art the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can inspire’  Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


What can inspire our hearts right now…

·         A walk through your local park,  a swim at the beach, or a picnic dinner

·         Its daylight saving, its an ideal time to enjoy family time in the  fresh outdoors

·         Go for street walk and enjoy all the flowers in bloom right now


Our inspirational offer to you is our once a year Christmas pudding offer. If plum pudding has a tradition in your home, you need to try this pudding at least once.  It’s rich, moist, delicious and hand-made by girls and women who are seeking initiative, dignity and hope, here in NSW. They will make an excellent gift in its self.

Making your lists, checking it twice...

We have just put up our new selection of distinctive Fairtrade Hampers.

This time we are featuring our ‘naked hampers’ to reduce throw away wrapping. We still pride ourselves where each hamper is full of goodies, and from now will be wrapped in burlap and calico, which are bio-degradable and compostable, with a handmade Fair Trade Christmas decoration, which will last long after all the goodies have been finished. 

Each hamper is individually created and delivered anywhere in Australia.  Please do leave time for delivery, especially to regional areas, OR if it has to be collected from the post office.

Whether you love Fairtrade coffee, tea or chocolate, fair trade gourmet treats or a nice bottle of wine, we know you will find a suitable Fair Trade Christmas gift hamper that will inspire your special friends, valued clients and family within our new range.

We specialise in a limited range, with each one being of high quality. All our products have been taste tested during the year, so we know what we are offering you. Also, the hamper baskets are Fair Trade and hand-made.

For deliveries we use our Courier or Australia post, depending on which one is most expedient.

Sometimes, when you are searching for the right gift…. A fairtrade hamper, hits the spot. It’s something for everyone; it’s a gift to hold, it can be enjoyed then and there, it can hold a surprise, but mostly, the person who produced the goods can enjoy your goodness too. 

May your heart never be underestimated, step up for what you value.

Many blessings

Grant and Mignonne
