All workers producing our Fair Trade goods are paid a fair and sustainable wage for their products
What do you mean "Fair Trade"?
That's a great question! In its most general sense, the term "Fair Trade" refers to an organized movement in the marketplace to provide workers and producers with fair and sustainable wages, all in an effort to promote better living conditions for everyone involved! Here at Organic Stores, all of our Fair Trade products come from artisans throughout some of the most economically depressed regions of the world. For example, a purchase of one of our lovely fair trade handmade scarves
provides an economic boost to a group of women in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala; a purchase of one of our one-of-a-kind fair trade handmade bracelets
supports artisans throughout Haiti, Kenya, Chile, and Mexico; and so on. Here at Organic Stores, our mission is to provide excellent Fair Trade products at fair prices, that help to provide for an improved way of life for those who need it most. Most of all, we guarantee that not only will you feel great about your Fair Trade purchase, but you'll absolutely love it too!back to top
Do Fair Trade products have the same quality?
Actually, we like to think that the quality of our Fair Trade products is actually greater than what you'd find in a typical big-box store. All of our fair trade items are handmade and handcrafted by specialty artisans who do this for a living; not simply a machine on an assembly line. But don't take our word for it, try out a few of our Fair Trade products yourself. We guarantee that not only will the quality be unmatched, but you'll be supporting a great cause with any of our one-of-a-kind fair trade treasures!back to top
Will you look good in our Fair Trade jewelry?
Well, we're sure you'd look great in anything, but as for our products just ask Diane von Furstenberg, who featured one of our colorful wire bracelets
in Fashion Week! With some of the most unique designs and styles anywhere, when you purchase our fair trade jewelry or anything else, you can be sure you're not only getting the highest quality stuff out there, but the most fashionable as well!back to top
