Gringo Fairtrade

Gringo is a leading fair trade clothing, accessory and giftware company based in Swansea, supplying customers in UK and Europe.

Born in 1988, Gringo is the result of many carefree years travelling the globe with a surf board under arm. The founders, Deb and Dave, travelled around Europe, North Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia and finally, inspired by truly amazing sights, unique crafts and wonderful weaves, decided to share their finds. Dusty Mexican villages, tropical beaches and Himalayan slopes, all influenced the Gringo of today, whilst not compromising their over-riding ethical principle of fair trade and helping to provide much needed employment in ethnically deprived areas.

Gringo is renowned for its exciting and colourful clothing, beautiful accessories and truly innovative gifts which are made from sustainable sources. Each season, Gringo provides a stunning collection of tops, t-shirts, dresses, skirts trousers and shirts, inspired by nature with natural weaves, tie-dyes and uniquely individual cotton printed fabrics. The majority of our women’s and men’s wear is designed in house, sympathetically working together with tailors overseas, to offer you stylish, bohemian alternatives to the mass production of the high street. We specialise in handmade clothes with unique hand finished touches, like appliqué, stitching techniques and quirky decorative extras making every item of clothing original and individual. No two pieces are the same!  Gringo also prides itself in completing the look with delightful felt accessories, bags, hats and many super home-wares and crafty gifts.  Be as passionate about fair trade as Gringo and help make world poverty a thing of the past.
