FAIR TRADE

What is Fair trade?


Because of Fair Trade, every MATR BOOMIE purchase sustains livelihoods and futures for artisans that have been handcrafting traditional art forms for generations.


Fair Trade is a market-based approach to alleviating poverty and promoting sustainability. It aims to educate and empower disadvantaged producers and connect them to global markets so they too can participate in trade. Fair Trade is a socially conscious business model that encompasses principles such as:

  • Anti-slave, anti-child labor
  • Environmentally friendly processes
  • Respectful relationships
  • Fair, living wages
  • Healthy work environment
  • Gender equality
  • Sustainable community development
  • Transparency


    MATR BOOMIE is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and certified as a Gold Business by Green Business America, so you can rest assured that all of our items are fairly, ethically and sustainably produced. We work closely with our partner artisans in India and have an on-ground team that ensures artisans are treated with dignity and respect. In fact, this spring 15 lucky customers got to travel with us to Indiato visit some of our partner communities and connect with artisans personally!


    As part of our mission to create a world that’s more compassionate, kind and connected, MATR BOOMIE goes beyond fair wages. We also invest in development projects, healthcare, education, skills training, micro-credit loan programs, and scholarships for women, minorities and people with special needs. Learn more about our impacts on our Sustainability page and in our impact report.
