We are excited to share that Dreamer & Co is the newest member of the Fair Trade Federation! Our acceptance as a verified FTF member reflects our deep commitment to the principles of fair trade. We are joining a community dedicated to the highest standards of fair trade and the pursuit of a more just and sustainable world.
Our FTF membership means we go beyond the fair trade basics. It’s a holistic approach that’s about building long-term partnerships with artisans and working to create positive change through all of our work.
Nothing will change about how we operate as a business under this FTF verification, but rather we were verified because the FTF recognizes our deep commitment and upholding of FTF principles. As an FTF member, we go through a rigorous screening that looks at our entire business. We’re committed to being fair and responsible in everything we do — socially, economically, and environmentally.
What is Fair Trade?
”Fair trade is an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system.Fair trade businesses partner with farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized in finding markets and customers for their goods”
Our Membership and Commitments:
FTF membership means not only fair wages but also long-term, holistic partnerships that support small-scale artisans in growing their businesses.
As a baseline, fair trade is about ensuring good wages and safe conditions
for the artisans. We go beyond that and practice responsibility in all of our work. It’s about building deeper, longer-term partnerships that empower producers to grow their businesses and strengthen their communities.
We are FTF verified, which means our entire business is socially and environmentally responsible in everything we do. For the artisans we partner with, it means they get a long-term buying partner they can trust. For consumers, it means you get the highest quality, most authentic products made. We build long-term partnerships that ensure good wages and safe
conditions for the artisans on the ground, and we strive to be responsible and create positive change through all our work.
