At JadeCrate, we are all about fair trade, finding good suppliers is a challenge, but we have been doing our homework and ta-da. We are working with some great organizations who are members of the World Fair Trade Organization to ensure we can find, procure, and get the best worldly boho chic items to our subscribers. I love India, Indian cuisine, clothing (I am a sucker for a colorful sari), the spice trade, and the culture. We wanted to share a little about our crafter in Mumbai India, Asha Handicrafts.
“India has always been renowned for its rich silk fabrics, woodcarvings and carpets. However, many of these products are produced in conditions of abject poverty for the craftsmen, exploited by large producers and moneylenders. Asha Handicrafts is a not-for-profit making body, based in Mumbai, India, working to promote Fair Trade and Fair Trade practices. As a member organization of the World Fair Trade Organization, Asha Handicrafts ensures that the benefits of handicraft production reach the craftspeople themselves.”
