New Fair Trade Handcrafts

August 31, 2009

Recently we received another handcraft  shipment  and we are now in the process of listing these new  Fair Trade handcrafts  on our World of Good web listings.  Some of our new eco-friendly lanyards — ID badgeholders– include some rugged looking ones that are made of wood beads– great for men or those casual days at the office.

Or have you seen the stunning hand beaded cross necklaces?  These 3 dimensional crosses are a wonderful gift to yourself or a friend. Check all the listings for the other colors.

We appreciate all your purchases because each and every sale helps the artisan that produced the handcraft.  She is able to feed her family better and keep the children in school.

You can check out all the new items at our homepage — just click on ‘See All’

Check back often for more new items and we will report on more as we have them available.

Is your women’s organization hosting a convention or conference?   These badge holders can make an ethical  statement that you are willing to treat your neighbors around the world with justice!   When you purchase these lanyards, instead of typical ones, the conference women will receive a beautiful remembrance of the convention.  They can be worn as a badge holder or when you remove it you  have a stunning necklace!

We have worked with Mujeres Artesanas near Solola, Guatemala for over a year  to help them with their business and sell their artisan handcrafts.  We work with them under Fair Trade Guidelines and not only pay a fair wage for their work but also help them in many other aspects of their business.  They recently received a grant from Education and More to improve their business.  We purchase or give advance credit to purchase beads in advance since they are unable to purchase sufficient quantities of beads for our orders.  Fair Trade gives a variety of benefits to the artisan!

Fair Trade badge holders for your group can be purchased in quantity at reduced prices.  Please check our website  for more information about the lanyards and then email us for wholesale pricing.  Whether you need 1 badge holder,  50 or 500 we can help you with a beautiful Fair Trade artisan crafted badge holder lanyard!
