Suppliers of Quality Native American Products
We are a husband and wife team, Jon and Rachel Sleightholm, and we started our business in 1997, based in North Yorkshire, UK. Jon handles the sourcing, buying & pricing of stock, everything financial and posting orders. Rachel looks after the website, social media, stock control and preparing the orders. As a company we offer excellent customer service and high quality, ethically sourced products and it is our aim to primarily source the items we sell from Native American companies or artists so that we are supporting the people to whom these crafts, ceremonies etc. traditionally belong. Some we have traded with since we began 20 years ago and they have become friends.
When we began trading in 1997 we specialised in Native American artifacts such as dream catchers, medicine wheels, pipes etc. and Jon travelled the UK with bag-loads of stock calling on shops and therapy centres from Cornwall to Scotland. After several years we moved into selling more Native American jewellery, especially Navajo silver & turquoise and exquisite Zuni inlay work.
Since then we have changed direction once again and now specialise in carefully selected smudge sticks and herbs while still carrying a selection of our original products. Jon doesn't travel any more and our business is now concentrated online. We purchase our Navajo products from a long established company who were original members of the 'Indian Arts & Crafts Association' (which was sadly dis-banded in 2018).
We also offer individually handcrafted items by UK artist 'Standing Bear'. who is non-Native American but is influenced and inspired by the culture. We keep our wholesale minimum order value low and offer free UK P&P to benefit smaller businesses who may find it more convenient to purchase in small quantities. We still supply shops and therapy centres in the UK and some in Europe too. Many of them have been valued customers right from the beginning and are also now our friends.
