Why Fair Trade Wrap Bracelets?
Fair Trade is about empowering the farmers, producers, and artists making the goods we use every day. The workers in a Fair Trade supply chain have access to better job opportunities, are paid a living wage, and their rights and equality are protected. In addition, they participate in collective decision-making on community funds generated through the Fair Trade premium.
In the Northern Chiang Mai Province in Thailand, job opportunities are limited. Our partner Darin is a talented Fair Trade jewelry designer who, through Fair Trade, has organized a jewelry cop-op and hired local women, including Nueng. Each bracelet purchase provides Darin, Nueng, and other women in the villages with equitable work while allowing them to remain local.
Equitable employment allows them to use their traditional jewelry weaving talents while caring for their families. Fair Trade includes an uplifting, nurturing, empowering artisan crafter and retail relationship, giving a new avenue to sell their jewelry and provide fair, timely, and reliable pay.
Each bracelet makes a difference for the Thai artisan and their family!
