Our fair trade gifts and ideas selection are among the best for all occasions, or just shopping. All our items are selected by curation, with our returning customers assistance—so we know what is well liked. Ours are the highest quality online collections of handmade, eco friendly fair trade gift or for-me items. Our fair trade jewelry and accessories are of the finest quality in design and crafting. We have products for women, men, family and rooms. And we are very proud to be nonprofit—which is a major difference between us and other stores. This means we give back in more abundance and ways (compared to for-profit stores) to the artisans who work with us. As well, we abundantly support artisans' community projects.

Incredibly appropriate gifts for her or him, or your family. For where you live or your work place. And we have a great, full range of fair trade gift items from Africa and India. 

Of course, we are also eco friendly and green. Our eco friendly gifts are selected by Stacey Horowitz (SFAC founder) following these criteria: aesthetics, originality, fashion sense, and very good longevity. Each item is crafted by artisans (mainly women) who live in developing economy countries. 

And don't forget handmade products, an important distinction. Our items are all hand crafted by our artisans in small cottage industry work places that themselves meet all the highest standards of fair worker pay, conditions and environmentally friendly work spaces. 

We travel with you to 50 artisan groups living in 29 countries spanning 3 continents. With our partnering craft organizations we take part in educating artisans on how to participate in the global marketplace, help preserve cultural traditions, and teach new skills both for business and life. Be sure to like us on Facebook and book mark us to return for future shopping.
