The Myakka pedigree
15 years of beautifully designed fair trade furniture, forest care and fast delivery.
Our Myakka story begins in 1999, in picturesque Somerset with Georgie, Simon, a small but willing team and a puppy called Floe. Our sights were set on offering the best quality, affordable, fair trade furniture, so we began adventuring to India in search of our own direct suppliers.
Myakka is now in her teens and has truly blossomed, still youthful, yet with a wealth of experience in the real workings of international fair trade and forest care. We’re still based in our beloved old warehouse though we have treated ourselves to bright new offices upstairs.
It's still Georgie and Simon at the helm and Dave, our ridiculously loving German Short-haired Pointer, has taken over from Floe in the noble art of keeping the office stress free, by bouncing around the office looking for a cuddle.
We now source all our beautiful furniture from a harmonious band of dedicated manufacturers and have built solid relationships with them all, over many years of loyalty and trust.
We have two great shopping outlets for you to visit that are open 7 days a week: Our Wincanton Outlet in Somerset displays our complete range, including fair trade furniture, colourful kilims and cushions, gorgeous lighting and inspiring gifts. Our Guildford Shop located on the High Street, is also a great opportunity to see and touch our fabulous furniture. Many of our gorgeous home accessories are also available for sale from the shop.
Fair trade is the golden thread that connects everything we do. Follow it while we take you on our guided tour of Myakka.
