Fair Trade for the Working Dad

Fair Trade for the Working Dad

With Father’s Day being this Sunday, we thought we’d give you more gift ideas for the working Dad!


We have desk accessories such as eyeglass holders and pen holders crafted from Sheesham wood, or Indian Rosewood. It is a hard, dark wood that grows in the foothills of norther India. This wood is durable, insect-resistant, and easily carved. Applying lemon oil or furniture polish will maintain the wood’s natural luster.


This collection from India comes from a group that was started in 2006 with the goal of creating opportunities for women, minorities, and artisans with special needs. Their network now consists of 20,000 artisans in 40 partner communities throughout India. 75% of their artisan network is women, and over 80% of their artisans live in rural India. The artisan partners receive 17% above market wages because of fair trade.
