StandSeven is new place to shop for beautiful homeware, fashion and jewelry, health and beauty and baby products. For example, one week they may sell gorgeous wooden toys that have been handmade in Sri Lanka, the next a handbag that has been stitched by an artisan in Brazil.

StandSeven strongly believes that design and aesthetics, and positive social or ethical impact do not need to be mutually exclusive. It offers customers the opportunity to buy fantastic, beautiful products for their home and lifestyle, that not only are ‘no harm’ but that also do positive good. People can shop and feel good at the same time. They offer complete transparency with their products, telling the story behind the products, about the incredible people, artisans and designers that work so diligently.
