Each piece of Threads jewelry tells a unique story of the woman who made it. The artisan cooperatives Threads partners with employ women who have BIG dreams – yet little opportunity. Through dignified work in a nourishing environment, women pull themselves out of poverty and reinvest into a future that we can all get excited about.
Fair Trade is the sustainable alternative to sweatshops. When you shop Threads, you support ethical business practices that empower everyone in the supply chain to earn a living wage.
We believe that fair trade is a verb. Fair trade is how we do business. Fair trade is also a movement changing lives around the world!
In a world where over one billion people — that’s 1 in 7 people! — live on less than $1 each day, it becomes clear what a difference fair wages can make for people, families and communities. Fair trade promotes fair wages, healthy working conditions, and a sustainable environment for both workers and the planet. A fair wage is a livable income in the local context that does not skew the local economy, but accounts for time, skills, cost of living, and purchasing power. -Threads Worldwide
