Fair Trade Crafts » About Us

Fair Trade Crafts is a website dedicated to the sale of fair trade crafts, gifts and other products from all over the world.

Fair Trade provides sustainable, living wages for the people that hand craft the products we sell.  We are committed to buying stock from ethical wholesalers, who ensure that a fair price is paid for each and every item, and that the producer groups respect and promote the rights, dignity and welfare of their workers and wider communities.

We want to do our bit, and help you to do yours.

Welcome.

 

Fair Trade and Ethical policy

Fair Trade Crafts support and promote fair trade principles in all aspects of the business. We only sell our products from suppliers who source products from local artists, communities and craftsmen.  We believe that producers should be representative of the religions and communities of the area and both male and female craftsmen are employed through the various stages of production. Fair Trade Crafts believe that education is critical to any community. As such child labour is not tolerated. We do however encourage the part-time training of older youths. Our suppliers visit the producers they work with regularly to inspect production conditions and to maintain personal relationships with the craftsmen. We aim to ensure that products are made from sustainable and legal raw materials through carefully chosen suppliers. All shipping materials should be recyclable. We aim to recycle and re-use wherever possible and are supplied with green energy.
