At Vidorra our passion for people comes second only to our passion for fairness & equality. We believe that through fairly traded, responsibly sourced products and ethically minded consumerism, we can ensure that everybody lives not only a good life, but a great life!
We work closely alongside BAFTS approved importers & wholesalers, who are striving to ensure economic security for all of their producers. A fair days work should come with a fair wage & many of our items originate from India where the best way to reduce poverty is through trade & community enterprise. The use of locally sourced materials & traditional techniques is highly encouraged. This provides us with an exciting, creative range of styles & unique pieces that can be forever treasured.
BAFTS is the British Association for Fair Trade Shops
“Fair Trade is a trading partnership, based on dialogue, transparency and respect, that seeks greater equity in international trade. It contributes to sustainable development by offering better trading conditions to, and securing the rights of, marginalised producers and workers – especially in the South.”
According to BAFTS, everyone involved with Fair Trade agrees that it has to include:
*Paying fair prices to producers which reflect the true cost of production.
*Supporting producer organisations in their social and environmental projects.
*Promoting gender equality in pay and working conditions.
*Advising on product development to increase access to markets.
*Committing to long term relationships to provide stability and security.
*Campaigning to highlight the unequal system of world trade which places profit above human rights and threatens our environment.
The Ten Principles of Fairtrade as outlined by The World Fair Trade Organisation are:
The environment is something we consider heavily & we understand the impact humanity has on it, consequently we are actively seeking to reduce our carbon emissions where & whenever possible. At present our entire range comes from 100% recycled materials. All of our rugs, mats & throws are wool free, are made from 100% PET & are vegan friendly. Do something great today & shop fairtrade.
