Our journey so far...
The 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 looking for a cuddle.
We now source all our beautiful furniture and home accessory products from a harmonious band of skilled craftspeople and dedicated manufacturers, and have built solid relationships with them all, over many years of loyalty and trust.
Our Wincanton Outlet in Somerset displays our complete range, including fair trade furniture, colourful kilims and cushions, gorgeous lighting and inspiring gifts. Open 7 days a week, it's a great opportunity to see and touch our fabulous furniture.
