Fair Trade Fashion works directly with vendors from all over ASEAN* and India to bring you a wonderfully extensive selection of handmade fair trade products, crafts and gifts. We visit local communities, learn about their creative processes, develop relationships and build trust – all with the goal of helping individuals and their communities achieve sustainability.
Our offerings focus primarily on handmade jewelry and hand bags, but includes limited textiles, garments and home accessories as well.
By utilizing their skills or bringing in a technician and teaching them a vocation we help village artisans obtain a steady source of income outside of drugs, people trade, and tourism which often takes advantage of their vulnerability.
We donate tools and materials to get them started and work hard to keep a steady flow of orders they can depend on. Staying true to the tenets of fair trade, we source the unique and authentic products we offer directly from the highly skilled artisans and workers who craft them.
*ASEAN: Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
