Are we fair trade?
No, we don't have the fair trade stamp of approval, but they are ethically sourced... But what does that mean exactly I hear you ask? Well, we give all our weavers a fair price for their creations. Most of our regular weavers work from home or within a community co op and others are found at the local artisan markets. After the baskets are woven, the weavers present their creations and are paid their asking price upfront. Doing business with the local artisans like this circulates cash flow within the community and empowers individuals, families and the entire local economy. Nothing can be fairer than this.
