A selection of items handmade by artisans around the world - we only work with suppliers who do their best to ensure good working conditions for people.
Here is an example statement form one of our suppliers Ancient Wisdom:
"We visit suppliers not only to do deals but also to see for ourselves how well staff and subcontractors are treated. We have on more than one occasion had to cancel orders because it seemed staff were being exploited.
The way it works in India is that goods for export are priced higher than goods for domestic sale (in India) - which means that exporting companies should be able to provide better conditions and pay for their staff (and a better quality product).
We are happy to work within this system provided that we can see the benefits. This is our version of Fair Trade."
