Fair Trade Blue: For Those of You Who LOVE Blue

Do you love blue? It turns out that blue is the favorite color of many fair trade fans. (According to one survey, it's the most popular color of both men and women in the US.) And you have your choice of so many beautiful shades of blue. 

Check out the latest color-focused Fair Trade Gift Guide. Our friend and colleague Nancy Dunitz at Dunitz & Company put together this guide. It showcases a collection of gorgeous blue fashion and home decor handmade treasures from our Fair Trade Federation Partners at Dunitz & Company, Baskets of Africa, Sevya Handmade, and HoonArts (of course).

Explore this beautiful blue world now and get a start on your holiday shopping.

Or just treat yourself! Who doesn't need a treat after the pandemic summer we've all had?

We are so grateful to our Fair Trade partners. It's so much more fun to work on building a new business eco-system based on collaboration instead of competition.
