The Story:

Creative Women is a fair trade home + lifestyle wholesale brand. 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 artisinal handcrafted pieces to a global market. Creative women's  artisans create beautifully unique natural fiber handspun and hand woven textiles and baskets.

Employing a longstanding and rich traditional art form, their artisans spin and weave 100% locally grown environmentally friendly high quality fibers. The pieces are then washed and accented with AZO free dyes or sustainably sourced leather.

Handcrafted with skillful hands and careful attention, each piece has unique qualities in natural texture, softness, and color. Creative Women is a fair trade certified company [Fair Trade Federation] committed to providing high quality jobs for their suppliers as well as unique products for their customers.

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.
