ALL THIS AND MORE
FAIR TRADE. NON-PROFIT. WOMEN'S DEVELOPMENT. SOCIAL CHANGE.
We are all this and more. It began with economic empowerment: forming women's cooperatives, training in sewing and embroidery, and that circle ended with the production and sales of the products in this catalog. But another circle emerged.
The women created, planned and executed various initiatives that informed and inspired them. These initiatives have taught the women how to manage their money, oversee their children's education, hone their leadership skills and build confidence and the courage to take risks. We have seen firsthand how providing women with safe and dignified jobs has the power to change not only their families but entire communities.
Our special mixture combining the qualities of fair trade, nonprofit, women's development, and social change has proven to be a very powerful recipe for change. As we continue to empower women through fashion, we hope you will come abroad for the journey and join us in supporting everything the women artisans dream of.
