Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency
and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It
contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading
conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalized producers
and workers – especially in the South. Fair Trade organizations
have a clear commitment to Fair Trade as the principal core of their
mission. They, backed by consumers, are engaged actively in supporting
producers, awareness raising and in campaigning for changes in the
rules and practice of conventional international trade. They can
be recognized by the FTO mark. Fair Trade is more than just trading:
it proves that greater justice in world trade is possible. It highlights
the need for change in the rules and practice of conventional trade
and shows how a successful business can also put people first. We
at Karigar believe in Fair Trade , assist us in making this world
a better place for our artisans. In and through the mandate of Fair
Trade we work towards:
