Stitching is a generous thing to do. We clothe our loved ones, raise funds with raffle quilts, sew gifts for new babies, make curtains to add warmth to a room or re-usable bags to save the planet. There is often a quicker way, a cheaper way or an easier way, but we stitch for love.
Now we can make that care go further.
At Fair Trade Fabric we source cotton fabrics that help to improve the lives of poor and marginalised producers, from those who grow the cotton, to those who dye and weave it. The cotton is grown organically and produced to minimise the impact on the local environment so both people and planet are protected. And we’ve found useful notions made by groups from Guatemala to Vietnam. Everything you will find in our online shop is fairly traded, guaranteeing that small scale producers in developing countries receive a fair, stable price.
So check out these gorgeous colours and see if some fair trade fabric can provide that extra special element in your next project.
