We celebrate the contribution and value of all people. We believe in equality and value a workplace free of any form of discrimination. We believe in a safe and healthy workplace, one free of any form of forced or child labor. We are deeply committed to being fair and responsible in everything we do — socially, economically, and environmentally and we know that the best way to make a difference is to help someone stand on their own two feet.
One World Fair Trade was established in 2002 and we are independently owned. We specialize in authentic handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor, art, sculpture, textiles, clothing and women's accessories representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Middle East and the United States. The sale of our products improve the livelihood of disadvantaged artisans and help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for those who would otherwise lack opportunity for a stable income. We have created a sustainable market with long term buying relationships with our producers representing over 50 countries. We envision the day when all trade will be fair, when everyone has the opportunity to earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect and be able to live a life of quality.
Fair Trade is the soul of our business and the principles continue to shape our core values. We are proud to be an approved member of the Fair Trade Federation and have been since 2002. We have undergone and continue to go through rigorous screening to validate our commitment. We strive to create opportunity and positive change through the work we do: socially, economically, and environmentally. We work with and partner only with small farmers, artisans and groups who share our same values and have also been thoroughly screened and approved by the Fair Trade Federation. Our relationships go far beyond ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions, our work creates jobs, opportunity and empowers producers to strengthen their communities and grow their businesses sustainably.
