Fair Trade Hand Pounded Copper Gifts 
Fair Trade Copper Tea Pots, Lotus Bowls and Trays from India & Nepal
Fair trade gifts give twice. When you purchase fair trade products, the benefits are far reaching. Fair trade cooperatives preserve traditional crafts and provide needed training and employment for men and women in villages with little financial opportunity. The success of these co-ops have enabled many members to continue their education and provide a better future for their children. Access to education, loans and health care are just some of the benefits provided.
