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, my newfound love of fair trade, and sustainable design had me envisioning a business that advocated for social justice and empowered marginalized workers, particularly women in developing countries. Together, my longtime dream, passion for all things home, and mostly importantly, new purpose became the foundation for 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.
