According to the Fair Trade Federation (FTF) website, “Fair Trade is an economic partnership based on dialogue, transparency, and respect.” The principle that Fair Trade is founded on is very noble and ambitious. Because of this corporation, many people who live in poverty have a chance to sell items that would not normally be marketed to the major population. Rather than be exploited, these people are given a better avenue to show the world what they can create. Listed and described below are five different, fashionable clothing websites dedicated to using Fair Trade.
1. Fair Indigo
Fair Indigo is a clothing website with many fine pieces. Most of their fashion costs a pretty penny, but they make sure to provide high-quality pieces for their customers. Women, men, baby, and kid’s clothing is available. If you peruse the website it is easy to see that they have some wonderful items to be purchased. Fair Indigo even sells beautiful jewelry too add that extra flair to an outfit.
One of their unique items include a Boheme bag that is reusable. Buyers can use this bag for shopping or carrying everyday items. Another interesting buy would be their best-selling Alpaca Scarf. It is 100% eco-friendly and totally fashionable!
2. Global Mamas
Global Mamas is another interesting store that provides Fair Trade clothing. Their clothes are appropriate for all ages and sizes. Their pieces also have attractive, lively patterns.
One of the aspects that attracts buyers to Global Mamas would be the name. It truly encompasses what Fair Trade is about. It is not about just one person but everyone around the globe.
Some of their best sellers include reversible aprons, decorative ornaments, and beaded bracelets. Not only can these things add style to your wardrobe, but they can add style to your home.
3. Marigold Fair Trade Clothing
Marigold Fair Trade Clothing is a very trendy wholesaler that wants to reach people everywhere looking for “economic independence”. The clothes are made from naturally dyed organic cotton. They do not have clothing for all ages, but they definitely have variety. Expect to find anything from a relaxing Yoga outfit to a stylish work outfit on this site. Marigold really speaks to adult men and woman, and that is what makes the store special.
I was impressed by the variety that they carried. Some of more popular items were printed skirts, dresses, women’s and men’s tops. They seem to be making a fashion statement with flowy pieces.
4. Pristine Planet
Green shopping is very important to Pristine Planet, making it a perfect fit for Fair Trade. Clothing for every age is offered at this site. They carry beautiful patterns. One of my favorites had a flowery look to it. They also have funky sayings on some of their clothes. I laughed when I saw printed text on a pair of underpants!
One of their best features is the organic women’s clothing. Some fine fashion can be found here. Tunics, pants, whatever you need, they carry it.
5. Maggie’s Functional Organics
Maggie’s has some different items, and that is why I chose this store as the fifth and final Fair Trade clothing place to look at. Maggie’s Organics makes sure to state that it fully supports the ethical treatment or workers and well-made clothing. This is something we can all respect as buyers. I really liked how Maggie’s carried tights and socks. These items are essential, and that means that any person looking to be involved in Fair Trade can make a lot off of them. They have other clothes too.
The more popular and new styles that they provide seem to be comfortable. The pallet is fairly neutral and wearable with many outfits. If you are looking for something practical and soft, this might be the place!
