Top Row, Ganesh Himal Trading Co.:
Founded in 1984 in Nepal, Ganesh Himal Trading Co. set out to create a business that empowered marginalized populations, like women and refugees. 30 years later, they are a part of the Fair Trade Federation, an organization dedicated to promoting respect and fair interaction, at all levels, between producers and consumers. Why will this line of knits make you feel extra cozy? Ric and Denise, the founders of Ganesh Himal Trading Co. say,"We have always felt that for profit businesses can be as good at modeling "fair trade" as non-profit businesses and so have tried to incorporate that diversity in our own model of who we partner with." Be sure to bundle up with their hats mittens and scarves this season. To learn more about Ganesh Himal Trading Co. click
Middle Row, PACT:
PACT has set out to not only provide people with beautiful socks, tights and clothing, they are also on an educational mission to inform consumers about the hardworking farmers behind the garments they wear. PACT wants to remind us that just as food doesn't come from a grocery store, clothing doesn't come from a department store- the cotton used to make clothing begins in a farmer's field. They use strictly Non-GMO cotton seed, wind energy and non-toxic water-based dyes that aren't harmful to the environment. And on top of all the good they do for the planet, the folks who work for them are treated and paid fairly. Slip into their organic cotton socks. Your feet will thank you.
