Locally Produced Hand Crafted Goods & Certified Fair Trade Imports

In today’s globalized economy it is hard to know where consumer products come from and who made them, under what conditions. As a Good Earth Movement, We have a passion for supporting local artisans and participating in a “Fair Trade” practice that engages the world in a system where products are manufactured with fair labor laws and sold to consumers without outrageous markups. Visit our shop to view our ever-changing stock of sustainably and locally produced hand-crafted goods.

Tuğba Robertson, our International GEM, overseas our fair trade imports. Tuğba grew up in the heart of the mediterranean, Turkey where she studied global economics. At the age of 23 she moved to the United States to attend a graduate program at UCSB. Later she would excel in sales and marketing in the Bay Area and go onto own her own company in Denver, Colorado. Her international travels and her experiences inspired her to start an import/export company, so her longtime dream to support and connect fair trade communities worldwide could be realized.
