beautifully hand crafted Indian furniture

"Georgie and  Simon" started Myakka back in 1999.  Their fuller names are Georgie Hopkins and Simon Whitehead and they were keen to supply really good quality fair trade Indian furniture in the UK.  They are based in Wincanton which is situated in the beautiful Somerset countryside just beside the A303 and half way between Andover and Exeter.  They have a dedicated team of employees and a very good and close relationship with their suppliers from India.  In fact they visit at least twice a year to maintain the relationship and to develop new products and ideas.

The range of Myakka furniture is, without doubt, beautiful, authentic, high quality and substantial.  You cannot visit their web site without beginning to appreciate the characteristic aesthetics of their particular brand.  Much of their furniture is extremely practical and robust and they sell hundreds of products ranging from storage seats and extended tables to kilim rugs and throws.

They are enthusiastic conservationists and work only with timber sourced from sustainable forestry.  They are very keen to reduce carbon dioxide production and so import all their products by sea.  They keep packaging as recyclable as possible and generally are mindful of global issues of responsible business and trade.  They are living proof that high quality living is possible in truly sustainable and beneficial way.  Do take a look around their web site - you will be glad you did.
