Plumo summer sale Sapa Bench

Fairtrade Vietnamese bench

Fairtrade Vietnamese bench

The annual Plumo summer sale has kicked off today. Don’t be alarmed if you visit the site, click on the sale and get an error message (as we keep doing) – just click through to the section you want (home, gifts, clothes etc) and you’ll find all the sale items.

Some things aren’t reduced by a great deal, and perhaps rather highly priced to start with, but this Fairtrade Sapa bench has rather taken our fancy.

The low wooden bench, with it’s colourful painted wood, is a Fairtrade product from Vietnam. The seat is covered with traditional Vietnamese folk fabric, which is a nice added touch, and it would be a useful occasional bench for your home. We can see it working well under a window or perhaps in a hallway.

The only snag is that they say that, “each product will differ slightly from the image shown,” and it doesn’t explain any further in quite what way (if it’s simply the fabric, then it’s probably not a big deal, but we’d like to be sure before ordering it).

Price-wise, the Sapa bench started off life as £249, but is now down to £198. If previous Plumo sales are anything to go by, the price may get reduced further if stocks don’t sell out quickly.

Have you spotted anything you like in the Plumo sale?
