Our carefully selected range of fair trade tableware and recycled glassware has been chosen to be practical, beautiful and ethical all at the same time. We love the hand painted finish of the ceramics and the tiny little air bubbles in the glasses that make each item totally unique and remind you of the love and care that has gone into making them.
The rainbow crockery is guaranteed to brighten your day whether youâ€™re using it for breakfast in bed at the weekend, an afternoon tea set or big bowls of pasta after a long day at work or school. And because itâ€™s Fairtrade you know that people and planet have been treated fairly right along the supply chain.

We have a great selection of serving trays and dishes ideal for entertaining or family dinners. And classic or stemless wine glasses all handblown from reclaimed glass.
The perfect way to add a bit of rainbow colour to your dinner table. Whether you choose the hand painted rainbow stripes of our fair trade crockery made in Thailand or the subtler shades of nkukuâ€™s Dakara dinnerware these beautiful and practical pieces are the perfect way to dress your table with colour and flair.
The Dakara ceramics have a beautiful crackle glaze and contemporary paint pot affect that is both striking and dishwasher safe making it an easy choice for everyday dining that will look great in any kitchen. The range of oceanic and earthy colour options can be mixed and matched or you could keep it simple and choose your favourite shade.
The dinner plates, bowls and mugs make a great breakfast or dinner set and we love the fact that the mugs are the perfect size to double as a stemless glass at dinner time.
The rainbow stripes range is bright and cheerful and includes everything from bowls plates and mugs to a toast rack, egg cups and milk jugs. Treat yourself to a rainbow cup and saucer to brighten up your morning tea break or get the whole set. The pasta bowls are very popular being the perfect size for a generous portion and we love the egg cups and small plate for dippy egg and toast at breakfast time.
Recycling glass not only reduces the waste that ends up in landfill and reduced our carbon footprint it also makes for some particularly stunning wine glass sets and tumblers.
We love recycled products at Babame. Glass recycling is great as glass degrades very little in the recycling process and can be recycled again and again. The waste glass bottles and jars are washed to remove any impurities and then crushed.
This crushed glass is then heated to high temperatures and the molten glass is then hand blown or placed into moulds to make beautiful new products. And itâ€™s not just glasses. There are lots of gorgeous glass products on the site including glass tile mosaic mirrors and bowls, and decorative glass bottles and vases full of natural beauty.
Nkukuâ€™s collection range in design from the simple industrial looking tea glasses, perfect for outdoor drinks due to their handy carrying basket, to unique contemporary hammered glass wine glasses. The unusual shape of the artisan made Ziki wine glass makes them very versatile and perfect as alternative champagne flutes or cocktail glasses.
If you are looking for a classic stemmed glass the artisan fair wine glass sets are perfect. The large red wine glasses hold 250ml and the smaller white wine glasses hold 200ml. They are all made from 100% recycled glass hand blown in Bolivia by skilled artisans which gives them a lovely colour and perfectly imperfect finish. Plus they are dishwasher safe. Now thatâ€™s worth raising a glass to!
From gorgeous handmade wooden platters and bamboo trays that double as a dinner plate, to recycled aluminium bowls for tapas, dips and salad weâ€™ve got the perfect serving dish for whatever youâ€™ve cooked up in the kitchen. Choose rustic natural wood, smooth sleek bamboo or modern aluminium depending on your decor and style.
The rainbow tapas bowls and salad bowl are a great addition to any rainbow crockery set. They are also perfect for sharing nibbles or a big bowl of popcorn in front of the telly.
The mango wood cutting boards and pizza boards make great serving platters for antipasti, artisan breads or big rustic meals to dig into and share with family and friends.
The bambu serving trays are great for laying out a selection of nibbles to share or buy several for great way to serve individual portions. Great for outdoor dining in summer where you might not want to risk your best crockery getting broken,.
If you are looking to replace your cutlery or just fancy treating yourself to a new set both the Artisans Fair and nkuku sets are fair trade, handmade and super stylish. And for little ones the bamboo cutlery is so much nicer than plastic sets.
