“Our products will be showcased in an arena attended by around 7,500 international buyers.

“The exposure at Pulse comes at just the right time for Little Trove, as we are branching out into wholesaling our new products for the first time. We are working to forge alliances with homeware,gift stores and garden centres who we feel fit with our range of homeware and garden products.”

Pulse takes place on Sunday to Monday, 11 to 13 May. The Earls Court exhibition is the UK’s leading showcase for new products in homeware, giftware, fashion and accessories.

The theme of the 2014 show is “First Peek” providing buyers with the opportunity to be the first to discover never-before-seen products, future trends and up-to-the-minute market insights.

Notes to Editors:

Little Trove was founded in 2011 by Ramona Hirschi as a way to promote design-led fair trade products in the UK.

Ramona is passionate about providing work opportunities and in using fair trade as a means of generating income for disadvantaged producer groups. A recent fact finding visit to India resulted in the launch of a project with weaver women in a leprosy colony.

Little Trove won first place for entrepreneurial spirit in the 2013 Newcastle-under-Lyme Business Boost Awards.
