About Us

Aardvark is a family run business that has been going for 25 years.  Everyone that works here knows the value of supporting the community, whether locally or abroad and it’s something we practice every day. We pride ourselves on being small and independent and look to source  as many of our products from similarly minded companies.


We make yearly trips to meet our suppliers in Thailand and Bali to learn more about what they do, and ensure they get a fair wage for fair work. A business should be sustainable for all people involved, so why short-change the people who put their time and energy into each and every piece of work they create? To us, Fair trade should be more than a name. We also support British artists and crafts people and small British based businesses.


We have a vibrant retail shop in the Corn Exchange, St Nicks Market  on Corn Street, Bristol which carries a vast range of Gift s, Jewellery and Greetings cards, we also have a Facebook Page .. Aardvark Bristol where we will post updates and announcements of new stock and sales that happen across our ranges.
