Fair trade

The India Shop, originally uploaded by Sunshine follows me.

This little family-run business imports beautiful handmade goods from India, aiming to preserve traditional craft skills. They abide by the fair trade policy, supporting family firms and co-operatives that treat their workers with respect and pay them good wages.

I'm especially attracted to the ecofriendly bags - made from discarded polythene bags that are collected, cleaned and processed using a method developed by a non-profit organisation that employs women from the Delhi slums. The bags look really funky - bright colours and sturdy looking designs.

Pretty cool, huh?
