At Sustainable Threads they are committed to cultivating long-term fair trade relationships with low-income artisan communities in India. The artisans they work with face diverse challenges and social concerns. They have a specific emphasis on artisan cooperatives and groups employing women. They aspire to provide these artisans access to fair wages, larger markets and secure, sustainable livelihoods. They work with groups that engage with local social and environmental concerns and create enriching opportunities and new possibilities for artisans and their communities. They collaborate closely with these artisan cooperatives and groups in order to develop mutually-beneficial and long term trade relationships. These relationships allow us to offer customers beautiful and meaningful high quality products. All of the products made by these groups are hand-made, and carefully designed to be environmentally friendly.
