Fair Trade from Vietnam, these Wine and Dine Plates has our fan’s cocktail hour covered.

The bamboo tapas plates are a fun item and unique addition to your service ware. These little plates work for toast, tapas for two, a cheese tray, and salads. Sometimes it’s nice to have a special meal or snack setting, even if it’s just for you-you deserve it. If you would like to order a set directly from us, we still have a few sets in stock we can sell directly to you.
The wine and dine tapas plate sets were brought in from one of JadeCrate’s fairtrade groups, Craft Link. They are a nonprofit organization, working with Vietnamese artisans to generate income, with a focus on ethnic minorities and artisans with disabilities. Craft Link also markets products from traditional Vietnamese handicraft villages. Craft Link helps artisan groups design new products and develop marketing opportunities.
Craftlink often sends a team of designers and project officers to live in a village to work on new ideas, provide training for artisans in management, bookkeeping, costing, pricing and product development. Craft Link sells artisans’ handicrafts locally and exports their handicrafts to fair trade organizations and commercial companies around the world. The organization’s goals include cultural preservation, public education on traditional handicraft. Other efforts focus on income generation for small-scale Vietnamese artisans and acquiring new markets. Artisans working with Craft Link receive tools, interest-free loans, education, training and literacy classes.
Craft Link was established in 1996 by a group of international nongovernmental organizations, including Mennonite Central Committee, Oxfam, and the Ford Foundation. It was founded to help generate income for poor and marginalized people, and to help traditional handicraft groups find markets within Vietnam’s changing economic system. Craft Link is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). (information provided by 10,000 Villages)
