Ten Thousand Villages is a nonprofit Fair Trade Organization. FTOs are non-governmental organizations designed to benefit artisans, not to maximize profits. They market products from handicraft and agricultural organizations based in low-income countries, providing consumers with products that have been fairly purchased from sustainable sources.
Ten Thousand Villages is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, a global network of Fair Trade Organizations. WFTO’s mission is to improve the livelihood and well-being of disadvantaged producers by linking and promoting Fair Trade organizations and speaking out for greater justice in world trade. Over 270 FTOs in 60 countries form the basis of this network.
Here is a little excerpt about this ornament:
A silver-plated filigree ornament with all of the exquisite detail and beauty of a real snowflake. A finely made seasonal decoration from the skilled artisans of Pekerti Nusantara, a Fair Trade organization based in the Philippines.
In light of all the snow across North America this week, we thought it was only appropriate to be giving away a snowflake from a country that has probably never even seen snow.
