New Clothing from Mata Traders
We are now carrying fair trade dresses!
We are so excited to start carrying apparel from Mata Traders. As a fair trade clothing company, Mata Traders is supplying handmade fashion products that use artistic traditions such as block-printing and embroidery. No factory production here! Flattering designs and bold colors are just a few things we like about the Mata style (not to mention the pockets!). For the producers, it's an opportunity to make a better life for their families. Now you can shop for an entire fair trade look from dresses to accessories in our store. Let's fashion a better world together!

As always, we are still collecting new or gently worn shoes for the Well of Hope International Shoe Drive. The sale of these shoes in Kenya provides funds to purchase land and homes, providing secure shelter for widows and their children.
