Since January 1th 2018 FairForward has joined forces with Eco Collection, tuyu and Tilingo Nepra. The unique new organisation will be focusing on fair trade home decoration and gift products. The combined experience and knowledge of the four organizations offers a wide range of trendy fair trade and sustainable produced gifts & living products. They offer opportunities for development to it’s producers in Africa, Asia and Latin-America. Their working methods are the result of decades of experience in working with promising producers as well as having consumers who are looking for a beautiful product with a story to it. It’s their specialty to bring these two worlds together.
In production the producers will have had each product in their hands. For instance the basket weavers in Bangladesh who work at home and deliver their orders once a week. Or the employees of a ceramic factory in Thailand where the working conditions are fully alright. And the glass blowers in Bolivia who are happy to work at a factory where it’s safe and comfortable to work. The ways the producers work together is as diverse as the products they produce. The similarity is they all live and work in a developing country in Africa, Asia or Latin-America, fall within a disadvantaged position and the fact they are organized to improve their situation. Separately they have no or hardly any access to the (international) market for their products: cooperating increases their chances.
