The “Rastafairies” began as a name and an idea after travelling and spending time in Jamaica.
Inspired by Reggae music and our love of the colours and the symbolism of the colours, we wanted to make Rastafarian and African merchandise more accessible, particularly at home in the North East of England.
Since the beginning we have been building a strong “grass roots” approach, getting out to festivals and reggae gigs and hopefully spreading a positive message of Love and Respect for each other and the environment.
Our main aim is to uphold and spread the spiritual message of One Love, One Heart and One People.
We have been working on buying from sources in Africa, with a range of our clothing and jewelery being handmade,see Bambalie Camara, Bubacarr Camara, Bakary Sanneh and Rosalie Colley in our artists section . We also have a range of fair trade jewellery from Peru.
Keep an eye on our events section, facebook page or twitter profile to see which festivals and gigs we’ll be at. Hope to see you there!
We hope you enjoy shopping with us and we give thanks to the Most High that you have chosen to buy from us and wear Rasta colours with pride and consciousness.
