Archipelago has always been a strong supporter of Fair Trading. And for example, has built up and kept very good long term lasting relationships with all of the Carvers and Sculptors. and the standards of the Fair Trade Policy is always monitored. From when the first sketches are drawn up, photos of real birds and fish etc. are taken, to the creation and then to the final product the design team at Archipelago work directly with the skilled Carvers and Sculptors to bring you a piece of art that is unrivalled in the market place.
Because these Birds and Fish are Fair Traded it also means that the numbers are always limited, so you will never see Archipelago Sculptures mass produced and in the big stores. Thus keeping them an exclusive and beautiful Collection.

Gannets hunt fish by diving into the sea from a height and pursuing their prey underwater. Gannets can dive from a height of 30metres (98ft), achieving speeds of 100 kilometres per hour (62mph) as they strike the water, enabling them to catch fish much deeper than most airborne birds.
