The Souk is for everyone who wants to help preserve our planet and natural ways of living.

Celebration of life – by Arthur Weinberg

We believe a more natural lifestyle need not cost the earth and by sharing peoples knowledge and experiences of the natural world , alongside artisans products and wellbeing practitioners services , more people can enjoy a natural lifestyle at an affordable price and learn about creative people and communities locally , nationally and throughout the world.

The Souk is non-profit making , relying upon voluntary contributions from participating artisans and small independent businesses , including individuals who care about preserving the natural world and ways of living.

Questions & Answers

Question – I already have a website , use Instagram and write about myself and products in blogs , how will joining the Souk increase my followers and/or sales.

Answer – increased numbers of visitors naturally increase sales when the best Hashtag is used for the product or service you sell , unfortunately the costs involved in getting huge numbers of visitors to your website or social media platform using the the most popular hashtags , like Art & Crafts , Sustainable Fashion & Accessories , Soft furnishings , Home interiors , Health & Wellbeing products or services , including things like Keep-Fit products and services is normally outside most small independent artisan and natural lifestyle practitioners budgets.

The Souk’s emporium style shopping and natural world website , supported by SOUK BLOGGING and the LOCAL DIRECTORY lets many more people know about your products and services than most small businesses and self-reliant craftspeople can afford if trying alone.

Question – What is the benefit of my profile , products and services appearing within the SOUK SHOP and within SOUK PARTNERs and the SOUK GALLERY .

Answers – Joining our natural local , national and global online community is easy all you have to do is send us pictures and a description about yourself and the products your make. However, If you already have a Facebook or Instagram account we can normally use these pictures and product description and if there is anything else we think will help others to understand what you offer a member from the admin team will contact you directly.

If you choose to offer your products in SOUK SHOP (this is completely optional) your products will be given a dedicated page listing according to the type of product , these are listed under the most relevant SOUK SHOPPING category , like SUSTAINABLE FASHION & ACCESSORIES , ARTS & CRAFTS , HEALTH WELLBEING & FITNESS , RECYLING & UPCYCLING.
