Alain Rouveure Galleries, Moreton-in-Marsh

A hunting ground for the famous ( and the not so famous...) the Alain Rouveure Galleries are a great source for designers and collectors and a treasure house for anyone looking for unusual gifts.

A hunting ground for the famous ( and the not so famous) the Alain Rouveure Galleries are a great source for designers and collectors and a treasure house for anyone looking for unusual gifts. The galleries are filled with an exceptional range of unusual products, all hand made in Nepal and Tibet and waiting for you in the most peaceful rural setting.

Traditional Tibetan rugs in fabulous natural dyes, exquisite silver jewellery set with garnets, peridot, topaz or turquoise, the softest Pashmina and silk shawls hand woven in the Himalayas, unusual and rare tribal art, ecologically produced papers and stationery, decorative glass fused with silver and pure gold and much more

Everything is made by hand in strictly small quantities and ever changing designsand all are exclusive to the galleries!

A strong advocate of FAIR TRADE with respect for the environment, Alain Rouveure works directly with small workshops chosen for their high ethics and the superior quality of their production. He is also an active member of RUGMARK, a world organisation monitoring child labour and working conditions in developing countries.

During his lectures in UK and abroad, Alain Rouveure often speaks of the growing need for the public to engage and to be reassured of the provenance and ethical nature of the production whether it is food, clothes or gifts.

So for him, no child labour, no dangerous chemicals and no machines! This philosophy has earned Alain Rouveure a great reputation worldwide ITV/ CARLTON screened two half-hour documentaries of his work. He was also presented with the 2000 WORLDAWARE Business Award for Fair Trading (Patron HRH The Queen).

A very good pedigree and a great location for beautiful gifts with a clear conscience

The HIMALAYAN COFFEE HOUSE is a natural extension to the already well established ALAIN ROUVEURE GALLERIES that were started in 1979.

For years, clients and friends have wondered why on Earth I have not been making use of the gardens in such peaceful rural surroundings and serve Teas !

Although I have always been more than happy to boil a kettle and throw in a couple of chocolate biscuits, so that some of you would enjoy the galleries and the grounds even more, I drew a line at spending my hours by a tea pot and some cluttered cream.

I was born to please but there are limits !

Just as with all the many products on offer in the GALLERIES, the food that is served is not driven by profit.

With that in mind, those who produce and supply the ingredients that are used represent the very best of the local resources and all have the same strong view on how good nourishing food should be grown.

We all want (and need) to follow the Seasons. This is what we have done for millions of years. Who craves to eat chemical laced vegetables that have travelled so many time zones they must be radiated to get over their jet-lag ? to be given the final blow by being blasted in a microwave - the ultimate Work of the Devil ? says Alain.

A selection of delicious CAKES and PASTRIES is served with specialist Organic TEAS and COFFEE from the Himalayan Regions of SIKKIM, ASSAM, ILAM and DARJEELING. They even serve exclusive organic coffee that they get flown over regularly from Nepal to guaranty ultimate freshness. All these have been personally selected and blended for Alain Rouveure on his regular trips there and all are produced ecologically and ethically in the mighty Himalayas following Fair Trade principals that are so important to him. Traditional ENGLISH, HERBAL and FRUIT TEAS as well as JUICE, CORDIALS and WATER are also available.

Enjoy beautiful works in the Galleries, walk around award-winning gardens and refresh yourself with premier teas and coffees with fabulous cakes at THE HIMALAYAN COFFEE HOUSE.
