I am so excited to be working with the amazing Mata Traders! Mata Traders is an awesome company because they offer amazing, quality items that are handmade by women's cooperatives and artisan groups in India and Nepal. What's great about this company is that they practice fair trade. Fair trade means that the workers who are making these beautiful items are being paid fare wages in a safe working environment. Some of the workers even work from home! In a country where child labor is prevalent, companies like Mata Traders are working to fight against it by offering jobs to people in poverty who are trying to earn some extra money for their families. I'm happy to work with such a wonderful company that is really working to make a difference.
