We believe every product has a story and if you listen closely enough, it will tell you of the hands that held and crafted it with care. We think no one should be exploited for the things we buy and that our everyday purchases can have a positive impact on communities around the world. When you buy fair trade, you contribute to a cycle of empowerment that is sustainable for people and the planet.

What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a system of trade that focuses on transparency, respect and equality. We support fair trade because we believe it is important to consider the lives and livelihood of the people who make the things we buy. Fair Trade ensures a fair, living wage, a healthy, safe and non-discriminatory work environment, and a commitment to building long-term partnerships that dignify an artisan’s work.Fair Trade Resources
