Creative Women is a fair trade federation certified home + lifestyle company committed to providing high quality jobs for their suppliers. They are long-term partners with talented artisans in Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Kenya who work in women-led small businesses. They also recently expanded their fair trade partnerships in Tunisia, Morocco, Burundi, Zambia and India. By developing healthy, sustainable, and profitable partnerships, they are able to bring artisanal handcrafted pieces to a global market where each piece has unique qualities in natural texture, softness, and color. In turn, by employing a longstanding and rich traditional art form, their artisans spin and weave 100% locally grown environmentally friendly high quality natural fibers that are hand spun & woven into textiles and baskets. The pieces are then stone washed and accented with AZO free dyes or sustainably sourced leather.
By creating a sustainable niche for these artisans, Creative Women helps to ensure their craft supports the health, education, and economic stability of their families. They believe that conscious consumerism — in which the act of buying is also one of giving — is a powerful way to effect change.
