Silver Sky Jewelry & Gifts: What is Fair Trade?

SilverSkyJewelry-1.jpg

By Cara Turner, Owner of Silver Sky:  Fair trade is a way of empowering individual artisans and communities in poverty stricken nations by giving the artisans a fair wage for the products that they produce. In turn, the individuals and communities thrive rather than just survive. There are no large factories where individuals are treated poorly and there is no child labor. The people normally work in their homes while they care for their children or in small clean shops where they are treated well.

Fair trade is transparent. The end user knows where the product comes from and sometimes the products are even signed by the actual artist. We can tell you exactly where the products we sell come from. A majority of our suppliers are not only wholesalers but they are nonprofit organizations that bring you beautiful products and give 100% of the income back to the communities. It doesn’t get much better than that!

We also believe that small business is the backbone of our country. At Silver Sky, our desire is to be an outlet to support small US businesses that produce beautiful hand-made items for you or your home. We carry an all-natural skin care line from Honey House Naturals in Washington State; and coral and turquoise jewelry from New Mexico to name a few.
