Our mission is to provide vital fair income to artisans in the developing world by selling their Fair Trade products and telling their stories here in San Luis Obispo.
If you're interested in fair trade, you've come to the right spot.
HumanKind Fair Trade will blog on fair trade happenings, store events and specials, and give you personal insight into the world of fair trade.
Do you recognize this lovely lady? If her face looks familiar, you just might have seen her either power-walking around town (more on that later), drinking tea at Bello Mundo, or volunteering her time at your favorite fair trade store! Here is what Patty has to say about working here at HumanKind Fair Trade.
The Bolga Market baskets that we sell at HumanKind are handwoven in the town of Bolgatanga, which is located in Northern Ghana. Agricultural practices are scarce in the town because of infertile soil and inconsistent rain. Since these people are mainly subsistence farmers, basket-weaving became a way for women to help supplement their incomes.
