Mata Traders partners with several fair trade organizations in India and Nepal that train and employ hundreds of artisans in marginalized communities, with a focus on gender equity and empowering women. This is what we love about working with them.

"In India, child labor is rampant in costume jewelry production. By partnering with fair trade organizations, we ensure that there is no child labor used in the production of our products. But more than that, fair trade is a preventative measure. Every year thousands of children migrate to the megacities of India to find work and send money back to their families. Providing a stable income to women at the poverty level is a way to combat the problem of child labor at its roots. The change can be seen not only in the life of the woman employed by the co-op, but especially in the next generation, the children the she can afford to educate."  Extract from the Mata Traders website.
