We're going to India and meeting with Fair Trade artisans

Supporter,

Fair Trade is about more than prices.

It’s about an artisan finally having the chance to control her own destiny in the workplace. It’s about creating a new way of doing trade, one where mutual understanding and respect means a direct connection between producer and consumer.

Kara Roguly, manager of our Fair Trade Stores, is currently in India meeting the artisans at Handmade Expressions who make our Global Exchange tote bags and other beautiful items sold at our stores. In the lead up to her trip, we invited our supporters who have a Global Exchange tote to send a message to the artisans of Handmade Expressions - sharing what they love about their bag. A big thanks to all of those who wrote in and shared photos. Kara is so excited to have the opportunity to share these messages with the artisans she will meet,  bringing to life the connection between fair trade artisan and conscious consumer.

You can stay updated on Kara's journey and learn more about the artisans by following our Fair Trade blog. In the meantime, you can support our work and display your support of Fair Trade artisans by becoming a Global Exchange member and receiving a handmade tote bag.

Sincerely,



Jocelyn Boreta
