Fair trade. Childhood. Beauty. At Gingham Trundle, we believe in these, and a little dream made its way into a little business -- beautiful, fairly traded clothes for your twirly girl.
Who we are: We started as a mother and daughter making clothes together. When a good friend (www.leastofthese.net) of the daughter donated sewing machines to a sewing collective in Africa, we all got an idea. Now, we bring Gingham Trundle to you.
Fair trade: We employ fair trade principles in all of our purchasing. We pay above-market wages agreed upon by the women; we give no time frames (so no undue pressure); we put a portion of our profits back into the community through healthcare and economic programs; and we ensure safe working conditions and no child labor. We are too small to afford the free trade certification process, but we are working toward that goal.
We thank Felicia Hoshino for the beautiful banner illustration and design (www.felishino.com).
