Your purchase of each of these fair trade gifts provides opportunities to the artisans and supports a process that provides dignity to a people's struggle for economic independence. These items are all handmade which adds a special meaning to each gift that you give. Most of these fair trade products are made by artisans who still use traditional techniques like block printing, ikat weaving, hand carving, batik dying and others when creating these quality handmade gifts. Each piece will come to you with a story card or information that explains this craft, thus sharing and spreading cultural knowledge and interest in many different areas throughout the world. The goal of our marketplace is to add social responsibility and cultural awareness to each of these gifts.
