Fair Trade Products

HANDCRAFTED ITEMS FROM AROUND THE WORLD THAT CHANGE LIVES

We offer unique handcrafted items from around the world with each product adhering to Fair Trade practices, which allows artists to support themselves and their families. Many of the organizations work in very poor areas creating jobs where none existed before.

Profits from this site support the Foundation Center of Helping Hands Orphanage and the Good Samaritan Medical Clinic in Barahona, Dominican Republic.

Every sale from our Fair Trade Line makes a difference in the lives of children and adults around the world.

Meet John Mucheru from Zakale Creations.  His story is like many of the other people that are supported through this site.  We hope you'll take a moment to watch the video, visit our artists' page and shop our store.  

THE FAIR TRADE FEDERATION PRINCIPLES ARE:

  • Create opportunities for economically and socially marginalized producers.
  • Develop transparent and accountable relationships
  • Build capacity
  • Promote fair trade
  • Pay promptly and fairly
  • Support safe and empowering working conditions
  • Ensure the rights of children
  • Cultivate environmental stewardship
  • Respect cultural identity
Artists are paid a fair price for products with most receiving 50% up front and the balance upon shipment. This allows them the ability to purchase raw materials and hire other craftsmen.
Each category is full of amazing handcrafted products from around the world.  Be sure to check each one out.
