FABULOUS FAIR TRADE ACCESSORIES
If you’re looking for distinctive accessories that are beautifully crafted in a completely ethical way, then this small but perfectly formed range of handbags, purses and pashminas could be just what you are looking for.
These stunning pieces have all been lovingly created in Vietnam by a group of reskilled female rice farmers. Rice farming in Vietnam is a weather-dependent activity – and the Vietnamese weather can often make it impossible for farmers to earn enough money to feed their families and send their children to school.
Creating these stylish and beautifully made pieces helps to ensure that these workers receive a regular and consistent wage as well as fair working conditions. Flexible working hours help with childcare management and a full training programme provides lots of opportunity to progress and develop.
This really is the perfect combination of contemporary design, wonderful craftsmanship and a commitment to creating more opportunity for the artisans that make it – so every time you pick up your beautiful new handbag, you know you are helping someone less fortunate to enjoy a much better quality of life.
