Fair Trade Federation Mission

Thumbprint Artifacts is a Proud Member of the Fair Trade Federation. We stand fully supportive of the mission of the association;

The Fair Trade Federation is a trade association of fair trade enterprises fully committed to equitable and sustainable trading partnerships. We strengthen and support our members in order to grow the global movement of trade that values the health of the planet, and the labor, dignity, and equality of all people.

FTF members are verified to ensure they meet the nine principles as illustrated in the diagram above.  The verification process is extensive and requires annual renewals.  All of these efforts are in an attempt to alter current trade systems to ensure they provide economic justice for historically marginalized groups, while also ensuring environmental practices are followed.   

The FTF community is a group of diverse companies that are all working to do business that is equitable and sustainable.  We are proud to be amongst them and encourage you to explore the beautiful products the community has to offer.  Below is a list of fellow peers. In the spirit of collaboration, please enjoy shopping from these kindred spirits!
