Ceramic Fair Trade Macrame Hanging Planter

$18.00

Create ambiance with our ceramic hanging planters. Hand-crafted by our ceramic artisan partners in San Juan de Oriente Nicaragua, these sealed terracotta planters are thrown on a non-electric kick wheel, wood kiln-fired and finally hand-painted. The cotton macrame hangers are made by hand by a small women's artisan group.

Approximately 3.25" wide x 3" tall. Includes 17" cotton macrame hangers.

Women of the Cloud Forest has been working in fair trade since 2001. They have direct, long-term relationships with small family workshops and cooperatives in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Peru. In addition to placing consistent orders with their artisan partners, they provide business training and product development/design and offer no-interest micro-loans and direct grants for workshop capacity building. This holistic approach to business enables their artisan partners to grow their businesses and access new markets without creating cycles of dependency.

Women of the Cloud Forest is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation, a North American based membership organization made up of organizations who offer opportunity to artisans and farmers in developing countries. To quote the Fair Trade Federation, fair trade means “good wages, safe working conditions, environmental responsibility, and more.” It means their partners are empowered to build strong businesses for their families today — and for generations to come.
