Here is my little pet project – a company called Trades of Hope. This company partners with women all over the world and here in the US to help empower their families out of poverty and desperate circumstances. All of the jewelry, scarves, handbags, home décor and more are handcrafted by our artisans.
The company employs fair trade practices and pays the artisans their asking price. It teaches the artisans how to create sustainable businesses to provide for their families and their communities.
There are monthly promotions that I will be sure to post in my blog, and each piece is reasonably priced.
There is so much to be said about this company, including the charities that they work with. Proceeds from specific pieces are also allocated to various charities and organizations. If you are interested in browsing and learning more, please click here.
