Fair Trade Batiks From Ghana

We have a lovely assortment of new batik items from Ghana. These fair trade products include aprons, dresses, baby clothes, pot holders, wine bags and totes.  They each include an informational card that is signed by both the seamstress and the batiker.  They make great fair trade Easter gifts and Mother’s Day presents.  Coming soon: more wax cloth clothes and handbags from Uganda!  We are loving our fair trade African textiles.  Happy Spring to all, and thank you for supporting fair trade both at our store in Port Gamble, WA and at our e-commerce site.

Fair Trade Products from Uganda

We have a growing number of beautiful fair trade products from Uganda, like the organic cotton dress shown here.  With the current focus on KONY2012, we wish to point out there are also good things happening in northern Uganda.  Fair trade groups are working with farmers and seamstresses to use locally grown organic cotton to create clothing and accessories and export them to Europe and North America.  This results in farmers and artisans getting a chance at lifting themselves out of poverty while preserving local art forms, like wax cloth prints, and minimizing environmental impact.
