Sea Salt works with artisans around the world by marketing their handicrafts. Every purchase creates economic opportunity and a better quality of life for people living in developing countries who are often unable to reach the global marketplace and engage in economic growth. But their talents are the salt of life.
Now, solidarity and good taste have come to Flechada.
The unique handcrafted items they sell are all produced by groups led by women, located in marginalized communities in different parts of the world. The income from sales of these items helps them gain economic independence and provide for their families. The products are all handmade and produced using eco-friendly processes and materials. The women who produce them are continuing their cultural traditions of weaving, sewing, embroidery, and other arts. Whether it's a mochila woven by the Wayuu Community in Guajira-Colombia or a bracelet that feeds an orphan in South Africa, each fair trade gift tells a unique story and supports a powerful mission. Make it a point to purchase ethical gifts to support artisans receiving a fair wage for their skills.
As we are talking about fair treatment, in addition to the satisfaction of contributing, in return you will receive a one of a kind piece with a high social and ethical content, but also with aesthetic sensibility. An example of this are the fiber necklace or natural seed beed necklace, now available here.
Flechada shows the world the amazing things Latin America can do.
