About Us

The Fairground is based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent and was founded by myself Shona Fernando in 2010. The Fairground specialises in fairly traded gifts for children and home. Having 3 young children of my own all the products are well tested and only the very best selected!!

I have always been interested in design, colour and fabrics. However, it wasn't until I had children that I had the idea of setting up my own business. I love the process of selecting fabrics, designing the products and getting the whole collection together.

Having spent my childhood in India surrounded by textiles and craftmanship it was a natural choice for me to source my products from India. Being a mother starting my own business I felt it was very important to have the products made by a woman's co-op that would benefit the lives of many other women. I was very happy to discover a wonderful organisation in Southern India that helps underprivileged women build better lives through skills training.

All the products by The Fairground are handcrafted and unique making them special gifts for your little ones to treasure and love always.

We do hope you enjoy browsing our collection. If you have any suggestions or questions please do drop me an e-mail on admin@thefairground.co.uk

Best wishes,

Shona Fernando
