Fair Trade | Handmade in Bangladesh
In developing countries, women artisans are at a higher risk of being marginalized in trade. Fair Trade empowers women to gain economic independence, express their opinion, and reshape their future.
Once upon a time, a young woman from the UK fell in love with a young man from Bangladesh. Eventually they moved to Bangladesh and had a baby. As the new mother cuddled her tiny boy, she couldn't help but notice all of the young women streaming into the garment factories every morning. She was deeply saddened when she discovered that many of these woman had babies back home in their villages, left for months at a time with grandparents while the mom worked in the city. Lack of rural employment for women was separating families and putting the mothers in harmful situations and the babies without their mothers. So this new mom did what she could. She gathered a few women around her and taught them how to knit and crochet. 15 years later, more than 13,000 women are now employed making Pebble apparel and toys in their home village. They walk to work, taking their babies with them. There they sit together, yarn spilling onto their laps as they knit community and love together in each heirloom they make. Pebble was born out of a love for babies and their mothers.
