What is Fair trade?
Purchasing Fair Trade Craft gives us the opportunity to buy ethically produced handmade items without the exploitation of the producers. It is giving economic justice to producers in the Developing World . Simply it gives producers a fair deal.
From modest beginnings in the 1950's, fair trade has now expanded into a world wide movement. It is helping disadvantaged and marginalised people work their way out of poverty.
Fair Trade ensures that the producers receive a fair wage.
Fair Trade supports the disadvantaged and the most vulnerable producers in the Developing World.
Fair Trade cares for the individual and the environment.
Fair Trade ensures there is no abuse of child labour.
Fair Trade strengthens producers capacity to market their products with International Market Access.
Fair Trade is transparent with producers and customers.

Fair Trade Assurance
We are finding that more and more customers have a conscience with their purchasing power. The customers want to know where the products come from and under what conditions they are made. Fair trade gives you the confidence (and assurance ) to relate positive personal stories about the lives of the artisans and their beautiful hand made fair trade craft.
