Fairly Traded

What are Fairly Traded products?

Fairly traded clothing products have been produced ethically. This means that the workers are paid a decent wage and their working conditions are closely monitored to ensure they are fairly treated. Organisations such as the Ethical Trading Initiative in the UK promote ethical working practices for workers worldwide. There are numerous organisations working towards this and most local governments already have legislation in place for this. However, enforcing it is another matter. It is technically difficult to adapt the Fairtrade Certification model of standardized minimum pricing to crafts and other products made by small-scale artisans. These are unique, made of varied materials and have highly varied production processes and costs. However FLO is currently working with the International Fair Trade Association to see whether they could create a certification for these products in the future.
