India, Fair Trade
Our supplier has long-standing partnerships with Indian Fair Trade groups that supply our handcrafted items. One of the larger groups that supplies our handcrafted items is a member of the Fair Trade organization of India, which is an Indian venture and association of craftspeople and social workers that creates cleaner and safer workshops and work environments. The payment of workers is good and free schooling for the children and healthcare is provided. Needless to say, there is no child labor and children are regularly bailed out of child servitude. Several western and Indian designers support the craftspeople by creating designs suitable for the western marketplace. This organization has been promoting Fair Trade for 20 years and is recognized by the Indian labor ministry.
