In an economy where many are taken advantage of, Fair Trade ensures artisans receive their due price for their goods. The women at our communities are able to earn beyond local minimum wages. By being compensated per piece, each woman is given flexibility in terms of hours and skill level. Some women choose to work part-time, and for those who are slower knitters, they are given due time to hone the craft without risk of losing employment. Furthermore, each women exercises control in determining the rate of each piece.
We strongly believe that "Happy Knitters bring great work and progress."
