Native craftspeople around the world make everything from fair trade fashion accessories to dining utensils to blankets and clothing. Ethnic handcrafted jewelry, however, has to be one of the largest, if not the largest category.
If you want to find good quality fair trade jewelry and accessories a good place to look is either at a local ethnic jewelry handcrafted marketplace (if there is one in your city) or, alternatively, you can go online. When shopping for ethnic fair trade handcrafted jewelry online, it’s best to go to the actual site that the community has set up, if they have one. This way you can make sure you get exactly what you want and you know exactly where the money is going. Often, the artisans have an authorized distributor to provide product fulfillment services in the country that is being supplied.
