Global Girlfriend was founded by Stacey Edgar in 2003 to help women worldwide gain economic security while providing unique products and a simple way to help women in need. Their fair trade brand offers a line of  women-made and fair trade products including apparel, accessories and gifts with one purpose - helping women in need help themselves. They believe that economic opportunity for women holds the promise for real change in the world; because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children’s health, education and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time. Many women try desperately to make a living selling their artisan-quality goods but find that they have little access to market opportunities. Through fair trade practices, Global Girlfriend brings the work of these disadvantaged groups directly to you. 

Global Girlfriend believes in forming long-term partnerships that provide women a fair living wage with equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance and development strategies to foster prosperity and reduce poverty. Between their wholesale and retail channels, they work with over 100 women’s artisan organizations in over 30 countries. They specialize in sourcing beautiful handmade products that make a life changing difference for the women who make them. In addition, every purchase you make helps support girls' education globally through GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide).
