According to the novel by Jules Verne, at 8.45pm on Wednesday 2nd October 1872, Phileas Fogg and his valet, Jean Passepartout left London intending to circumnavigate the globe in less than 80 days in order to win a wager of £20,000.
We like to think that he was curious about the cultures and crafts of each country he passed through, and stocked up on beautiful goods at every stop.
We have scoured the four corners of the globe to find a beautiful collection of mostly ethically-traded handcrafted gift and homewares.
