360° Fair Trade
Posted on 26 October 2015
As a founding member of the Fair Trade Federation, we are deeply committed to fair trade - it's at the heart of what we do and fair trade principles guide our decisions every day.
Like other FTF members, we strive to build meaningful, trusting relationships with our artisan partners and to act as good global citizens through all our work.
Recently, the Fair Trade Federation shared new messaging about what it means to be fully committed to fair trade as a FTF member. The concept of 360° fair trade is meant to express this deep commitment.
What does this look like? We undergo rigorous screening and strive to create positive change through all of our work: socially, economically, and environmentally. We work with women artisans in Guatemala in holistic partnerships built on trust. These relationships go beyond ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions — they empower producers to strengthen their communities and grow their businesses sustainably. We build long-term partnerships that ensure good wages and safe conditions on the ground, and we strive to be responsible and create positive change through all of our work. For consumers, it means you get the highest quality, most authentic products, made the traditional way.
We are proud to belong to the Fair Trade Federation, which is the deepest commitment you can make in the fair trade world.
