Fair Trade goods and practices by Jaipurhandloom.com Since 2013 Hand Made in India 100 Organic 100 vegan Shipping Worldwide Do Fair Trade goods cost more than non-Fair Trade goods No. Fair Trade crafts generally don’t cost more than other goods because the middle players in the supply chain are removed thus decreasing the mark up costs. Jaipurhandloom.com directly works with artisans to cut off the middleman and organization goes hand on hand on each part of the handmade process of all items be as Mandala Tapestries Sari kantha Blankets or patchwork cushions covers.

How is Fair Trade making a difference if the sales volume is so low compared to non-Fair Trade sales First Fair Trade sales volume is not low: retail sales of Fair Trade items passed 1.1 billion in the U.S. in 2009. That has generated additional income paid to producers beyond normal market rates of 48 million. Further for a Peruvian weaving cooperative making only a few hundred dollars a year a 1000 craft sale to a Fair Trade Organization is a significant increase in income. In some parts of the world Fair Trade earnings are turned over to the community to improve quality of life. The money may fund a potable water system or provide health education or bring an adult literacy program to the community. Keep in mind there is a much more direct link from consumer to producer in Fair Trade and so the producers benefit that much more from each incremental increase in revenue.

Do Fair Trade Organizations offer financial support to producers Yes. Small-scale farmers and artisans in the developing world lack access to affordable financing impeding their profitability. Fair Trade Organizations that buy products directly from producers often provide financial assistance either through direct loans pre-payment or by linking producers with sources of financing. Unlike many commercial importers who often wait 60-90 days before paying producers many Fair Trade Organizations ensure pre-payment so that producers have sufficient funds to cover raw materials and basic needs during production. Do Fair Trade Organizations offer technical support to producers Yes. Fair Trade Organizations provide crucial technical assistance and support such as market information organizational development and training in financial management.
