In 2018, MTMfair was established with the aim of creating a global platform where makers of sustainable interior and lifestyle products could showcase their goods to an international network of distributors, retailers, and consumers.
As founders of Project Sixto, the parent company of MTMfair, we chose to grow the platform organically without resorting to "hiring and firing" practices. The goal was to provide a self-funded platform where like-minded sellers and buyers could enjoy the benefits of "noise reduction" through the concentration on ethically produced interior and lifestyle products.
The disruption of the trade chain though the COVID-19 pandemic however, as well as the flooding of the market by heavily invested competitors during and after this time have led us to conduct a thorough analysis of customer needs thereby realigning our business model.
As a result, MTMfair will relaunch soon, focusing on enabling makers from Southern and East Africa (initially) to showcase their products to European buyers. In addition to product showcasing, our relaunch will encompass a platform for members to interact, pose questions, pool resources, receive shipping quotes, get best practice tips and much more.
Current active members will be automatically transferred to the new platform. If you are interested in becoming a member, you are welcome to sign up here
