Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Fair trade deals with issues of injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position.
Llama Fair Trade Shop supplies a range of unique items from all over the world many of them very unusual and at a fair low cost. They have lots of different things from arts & crafts, bags, jewellery, clothing, instruments, home items, toys and dolls. I was sent lovely doll for review and here she is.
just adorable.Her name is Zoe. She reminds me of my little girl Jordanna and also a bit of myself when I was younger (yes my hair was red at one time?) Zoe is made in Sri Lanka (hand made and produced with Fair Trade Principles) made entirely from locally produced raw materials- fabric and wool. A great gift for any little girl. The doll costs £12.50 and there are other dolls to choose from in the range.
I was also sent a Guatamalean worry doll.
. The worry dolls come in a variety of colours and sizes. The making of worry dolls has long been a tradition in Guatemala. According to legend Guatemala children tell one worry to each doll before they go to sleep.They then put the dolls under their pillow. In the morning their worries have been taken away.
Both these dolls plus everything else in the range can be found by visiting the online shop here
