about us

cambodiaOur story…
During a holiday in Siem Reap, Cambodia, a long day exploring the ancient temples of Angkor ended with a visit to the bustling local night market. Amongst the ubiquitous stalls selling silk scarves, cushion covers and the like, a gem of a stall selling an array of contemporary-designed silk and cotton bags caught our eye.

The bags were handmade by young local women who had been trained as professional seamstresses by a local non-government organisation. This work provided them an invaluable opportunity to earn a fair income to support their families. Many people living in the local village communities struggle to get out of the cycle of poverty.

cam_opInspired by their story, Simply Living Lifeshop was set up to market beautiful handmade, fair trade products such as these to a wider audience, and in doing so, help expand the opportunity for impoverished communities in developing countries to improve their economic independence. Many of these products are also sustainably designed, made from recycled or raw renewable resources. This led to the expansion of our product range to include a unique variety of earth-friendly as well as ethically produced lifestyle products – for wellness, for the home, for you and for baby.

We sincerely hope you will enjoy browsing through our eco store, and that every purchase you make, whether as a gift for yourself, a loved one or a friend, will bring you meaningful joy!
