Fair Trade Wholesale is the wholesale arm of Lovethatstuff. We import Fair Trade crochet brooches, necklaces, collars and bracelets from India; earrings, necklaces and bracelets from Kenya; organic cotton tops from India, men’s and women’s tops from India and Nepal.
We buy from WFTO (World Fair Trade Organisation) registered producer groups because this helps ensure that there are good social projects which the groups can fund with the extra premium that Fair Trade pays.
We like to buy natural fibres so all our Nepali men’s shirts are made from handloom cotton. The cotton comes from India. We also buy some machine made cotton from one of the producer groups in India as well as some handloom cotton. Some of the women’s clothes are made from handloomed pure bamboo.
Our organic cotton tops are from a group in Tamil Nadu. These are made from Fair Trade cotton though we haven’t registered with the Fairtrade Labelling Organisation because we buy in small quantities so it’s not cost effective to go through the registration process but the farmers are getting the Fair Trade premium so that makes us feel good.
Good quality products are important to us as we want our customers to enjoy what they buy.
We are a registered not-for-profit company and financially support some extra social projects when our producer partners have asked us for some extra help.
