Ethical Trading


 Focalpoint Home is attentive to the long term development and preservation of the traditional arts. We are supporting the Tunisian Artisans by buying from them directly. If there is no market for the products the artists must find other employment and cease their craft. ‘Focalpoint’ encourages the preservation of the traditional skills by finding new markets for the products. This will have a long term effect of encouraging long term employment. Tunisia’s economy is in transition at present due to political upheaval. The tourism industry is currently suffering due to unrest, and while we see this as a short term issue, we are aware of the difficulties this poses for the artisans who rely on the tourism income.
