‘Ruffld.com’ are at the Autumn craft fair.

Posted by Kylie on Friday 19th September 2014

Ruffld.com‘ are showing their fantastic handmade crafts this Saturday at Saffron Walden.

“Working in a school office for over 17 years was never dull and always hectically busy but I decided that I wanted to do something a bit more creative than counting dinner money and patching up grazed knees!!   So I came up with an idea to just paint,and sew, and make, and sell my products at Craft Fairs and also online. My son built me a website (how lucky am I) and https://Ruffld.com was born!

Ruffld’s concept is to not only sell my own products but to gradually build it up to sell a variety of gifts as unique and unusual as possible. Many of the products are hand made by various artists, mostly British. I am always on the look out for new and exciting products.”

OUR ETHOS

Sustainability and fair trading standards are at the heart of eka: We choose not to deal with China at any stage of the process due to Gilly’s personal political views. Every decision made for the company involves putting people and principles first before profit, a little more hard work is needed, but in the end Gilly feels eka needs to embody all of her personal principles and beliefs.

HAND MADE IN AUROVILLE

The village where eka is made is called Auroville and is set in the South-East of India, in a region called Tamil Nadu. The town is not your average Indian town.

Auroville is a universal township with a population of around 2000 people from around the world.
The concept of Auroville – an ideal township devoted to an experiment in human unity – was an idea which had planted its seed in the head of the creator as early as the 1930s. In the mid 1960s the Sri Aurobindo Society in Pondicherry proposed to the creator that such a township should be started. She gave her blessings and work began. The concept was put before the Government of India, who gave their backing and took it to the General Assembly of UNESCO. In 1966 UNESCO passed a unanimous resolution commending it as a project of importance to the future of humanity, thereby giving their full encouragement.

The purpose of Auroville is to realise human unity – in diversity. Today Auroville is recognised as the first and only internationally endorsed ongoing experiment in human unity, also concerned with – and practically researching into – sustainable living and the future cultural, environmental, social and spiritual needs of mankind.

Preparations are in full swing for our Autumn craft fair at Saffron Walden this Saturday, 20th September.  I’ve been over to Saffron Walden this morning to check all advertising is still in place and to put up road signage.  The Market was on today and it was great to see it busy and bustling, this will add to the atmosphere on Saturday’s event.
