Divas Fair Trade - Our Story: A Fair Trade Family

WELCOME TO OUR FAMILY

Family is everything. We’re a family based socially responsible business that considers all of our artisan partners and customers as members of one big extended family. We’re all on this planet together and when we work cooperatively we can create incredible change!

WE BELIEVE

People and the planet should not be exploited for the things we buy. It is important to us that people’s rights are respected in the workplace. We partner with artisan co-ops and small workshops that are mindful of the materials that are used and re-used. This protects the planet from harmful waste and pollution.

PEOPLE SHOULD BE PAID FAIRLY FOR THEIR WORK.

A fair wage means men and women are paid equally. It means people can afford to send their kids to school and access quality health care. A fair wage helps ensure a decent standard of living and secure a future for artisans’ and farmers’ families.

YOUR EVERYDAY PURCHASES CAN HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE WORLD.

Whether it’s a cup of coffee, a pair of socks, or a birthday card for a new friend, there are fair trade products for every day and every occasion. We believe fair trade products can be practical. They’re also beautiful, useful and unique. When you’re out on a shopping trip, think fair trade first!

SUPPORT SMALL LOCAL BUSINESS. THEY ARE THE HEARTBEAT OF OUR COMMUNITIES.

It is really important for us to have fair trade stores in our local communities where we live and work. We envision a time when every town has a fair trade store they can visit!

Divas Fair Trade provides something a typical shopping experience doesn’t – unique gifts with purpose. Shoppers can feel confident that a significant percentage of their purchase goes directly to the artisans and farmers who created it, all over the world.

Purchasing fair trade products marks a distinguished path towards equality, sustainability, and positive change. This direct, non-discriminatory relationship helps artisans, families, and communities become self-sustaining. We provide a market for fair trade commodities and crafts so artisans and farmers can improve their lives. They are given the tools to invest time and money into their talents, land, families, community, healthcare, and education.

We started our Fair Trade journey since 2002. Having the opportunity to travel and visit many places as in our native Perú has given us the opportunity to do a very special work: educate the communities where we live and work about the impact of our purchasing decisions.

We have a passion to help others, and believe that empowering women abroad and locally can help alleviate many of the problems that society faces today.

A portion of our profits fund interest-free micro-lending programs that benefit people worldwide mainly women and children to start their own entrepreneurial projects or access the education they need to advance. We invest in education and people.

We started small by selling products locally at fairs, events, and churches. Eventually, we invested in a retail space and Divas Fair Trade was born. We are committed to the 9 PRINCIPLES OF FAIR TRADE as outlined by the Fair Trade Federation.
