Caoba have been trading since 2001 from our store in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. Our speciality is handcrafts which we import directly from Mexico. Over the years we have diversified our products to include a great range of greetings cards, scented candles and other items which we enjoy selling. Wherever possible Caoba buy directly from the producers and always pay a fair price. Like ourselves most of our suppliers are small family-run businesses. As most products are handmade, slight variations in colour and size are to be expected. We endeavour to offer you great products and a secure service.
Fair Trade Policy
Caoba trades ethically and respectfully. We are loyal and reasonable in all our dealings. We work together to build long term relationships that are both financially and materially sustainable.
We import most of our products directly from Mexico and specialize in handmade items. Sustaining traditional handicrafts is something we have a great passion for.
We deal directly with the producers and wherever possible the ‘middlemen’ are taken out of our supply chain to allow as much money as commercially possible to go directly to the producers.
We always give a 50% down-payment to allow our suppliers to buy materials; the balance gets paid promptly on delivery.
We visit most of our suppliers at least once a year to maintain a good working relationship and product development.
