Hand made by an artisan group in Vietnam. This group was started by social workers who were concerned about improving the lives of street children and single mothers in Ho Chi Minh City. This group reaches out to artisans in marginalized areas, providing marketing and training. 80% of this group’s 300 employees are women, and all of the artisans this group employs are earning significantly more per month than Vietnam’s average monthly income. Working for this fair trade group gives the artisans the opportunity to do their work from home, or at least their home villages, instead of working in one of the factories that are abundant in Vietnam.
