Hello there; thank you for taking the time to learn about our story. My name is Diana Salvati, and I'm the founder of Saltbox Sash, a fair trade home decor, and gift shop. Saltbox Sash was born out of my desire to contribute to a more just world that empowers underprivileged global artisans, and advocates for social justice, particularly women and children. Unfortunately, they are the most vulnerable to forced labor, exploitation, harassment, inequality, and unsafe working conditions. Through fair trade principles, artisans have the opportunity to lift themselves out of poverty and create a brighter future while earning a sustainable, dignified wage to support their families.
Owning my own business has always been my dream, and I've always been passionate about home design. However, when I learned about fair trade, I knew that my dream of starting a business would mean being a part of this movement and advocating for doing business the way it should be; people over profit. I am deeply committed to curating fair trade and ethically-made pieces where nothing is mass-produced, and every product tells a story. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our small business and supporting fair trade.
