February 2017: The Indigo fairtrade shop


Spring Tea


Number 62 is occupied by the fairtrade gift shop 'Indigo'. It opened in 2008, originally called 'Saree'. The business originally started "with a few bags and scarves picked up from the Par Ganj bazaar in Delhi and sold at Oxford’s Thursday market", according to the Indigo website. Their move to a permanent shop was enabled by a bank loan "granted on the day the Lehman Brothers collapsed".
