There are lots of fair trade companies all over the world, but at CWOW we carry Mata Traders and Global Mama’s as our main providers of the clothing we sell.
Mata Traders’ products are original designs handmade in India and Nepal by women’s cooperatives and artisan groups. Their producers are paid a livable wage in safe and fair conditions, and do their work at home and in small workshops rather than factories. Services like on-site day-care, medical check-ups, and over-time pay are also offered. Their products, especially their dresses display the unique designs and patterns. Most are hand block printed with eco-friendly vegetable dyes.
We also carry Global Mamas’ clothing, mostly their children’s clothing and some different kinds of skirts. Founded in 2003, their moto has always been, “Love your product. Know your producer. Change her life.” They achieve prosperity by creating and selling unique, handcrafted products of the highest quality. Their Mamas realize their dreams of having the opportunity to support their families, send their children to school, improve their health, and save for the future.
Why wouldn’t you want to buy fair trade from CWOW knowing we work with some fantastic companies that share the same love and passion for empowerment and making the world a better place?
Stay tuned for next week when we explore WHEN? Along with the announcement of our July event!
