In 2017, I attended a craft show and purchased a beautiful heart-shaped jewelry box, hand-carved by an artisan in India. This small purchase sparked my journey to learn how fair trade impacts underprivileged global producers. The fair trade principles empower artisans to create a brighter future by earning a sustainable and dignified wage to support themselves and their families.
Owning my own business has always been a dream of mine, and I've always been passionate about home design. However, I envisioned a business idea that advocated for social justice and empowered marginalized workers, particularly women in developing countries. I implemented all of these elements together and launched my fair trade home décor & gift shop, Saltbox Sash. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our small business and supporting fair trade.
