At Dassie, Fairtrade principles are at the core of everything we do. Our mission is to build relationships with, and promote the work of talented artisans in developing countries by bringing their creations to a wider market. We seek to empower these artisans to make a living from their skills and create better lives for themselves.
We are proud to be a member of BAFTS (British Association of Fair Trade Shops). As members of BAFTS we adhere to their 10 Principles of Fair Trade and work to support their aims. To summarise, their principles seek to create opportunities for disadvantaged producers by means of fair trade practices and accountability. This entails payment of a fair wage, no child or forced labour, gender equity, lack of discrimination, good working conditions, and respect for the environment.
