I recently found a place on the internet that helps a lot of women and girls around the world.  It is called Fair Trade DesignsFair Trade Designs only works with companies that strictly adhere to fair trade practices. What does that mean? It means the companies that have products on here do not have child or slave labor, they do not have sweatshops or cheap piecework.  They pay their employees good wages and do not harm the environment.

Here is the Red Tagua Nut Heart Pendant I received.  Isn’t it pretty? It goes with lots of things too.  This is a hand carved Tagua Heart Pendant made out of the Tagua Nut.  It is a renewable rainforest seed that grows from the Amazon’s Tagua Palm Tree, It is regarded as vegetable ivory for it’s likeness to real animal ivory. Tagua has become a highly valued commodity by artisans and consumers a like.

I love the color of this Heart Pendant it is achieved by boiling and other natural techniques that enhance the nut’s natural beauty.

You can find all kinds of products on Fair Trade Designs such as jewelery, kitchen linens, purses, bags and stationary.
