 ■ Indicators of Fair Trade
 ■ Realities of Fair Trade in     India
  • We investigate all the producer groups we promote, reviewing business practices, pricing policies, gender bias and working conditions of their artisans in the group’s premises before and during our association with them.
  • We invest in the capacity building of our producer groups by giving them design guidance & marketing inputs, enabling them to develop new designs and products that are in line with trends abroad.
  • We provide financial assistance to producers out of our own working capital for purchase of raw materials and to cover a portion of their cost of production upon confirmed orders.
  • We have welfare workers stationed at major centers of handicrafts with instructions to assess medical and educational needs of artisans’ family members, who are then assisted by us on merits of their situation.
