About the Makers

The Dharma Door Fair Trade Australia

Quick Facts

  • The people that make our products work in conditions that comply with the 10 Principles of Fair Trade, including receiving a fair wage, safe work conditions, and no child or forced labour
  • The vast majority of the people that make our products are women. Receiving a fair income means that the women don't have to depend on their husbands or male family members financially. It also means they can afford education for their children, which has a far-reaching impact on the whole community. The World Bank states keeping girls in the classroom for as long as possible is crucial in the fight to eradicate global poverty
  • We stock products that are made in over 20 different countries, including Australia
  • Every single one of our products is uniquely handmade
  • Many of our makers use traditional craft techniques, processes, and materials or ingredients, which ensures traditional skills and cultural knowledge are kept alive
  • Our Aboriginal Art suppliers are members of the Indigenous Art Code, which preserves and promotes the ethical trade of Indigenous Art. Artists receive royalties for every sale
