FAIR TRADE PRINCIPLES 3.

   Posted by: admin   in

3. Build Capacity Fair Trade is a means to develop producers’ independence. Members maintain long-term relationships based on solidarity, trust, and mutual respect, so that producers can improve their skills and their access to markets. Members help producers to build capacity through proactive communication, financial and technical assistance, market information, and dialogue. They seek to share lessons learned, to spread best practices, and to strengthen the connections between communities, including among producer groups.

 Fair Trade Principle #3 speaks of developing the producer’s independence.

It also speaks of building a long-term relationship with the artisans.

it also speaks of bulding capacity: for these artisans this would mean: renewal of their old casting machinery and switching over to zamac and silicon molds. There is plenty of production credit money available in Guerrero and this could have been accomplished if Global Crafts had not sandbagged them in 2017. The reason the village craftswomen offered Emi Estrada the official leadership of the cooperative was to take advantage of her knowledge of how to access federal government resources. That was part of their plan to access this credit. Also in 2017, there became available a lot of earthquake damage federal credit. The cooperative would have qualified for 0% funding or a “lost fund” grant if their customer Global Crafts had not suddenly “gone south” on them (all the while, disguising their  intentions from the women, who their faithful suppliers, who are diligent and careful-workers and who depend of her orders . )    

What Global  could have done is purchase materials for them, abalone shell and nacre shell and lapidary stone. Good to purchase in a large quantity. Global Crafts could buy their materials at wholesale for them. But, as the record shows, this company was just “NOT into” capacity building of the artisan community.

I am old school. I believe that a distributor has an obligation so support the producer with new tools and a focus point for working together. However, in this lamentable case, Global Crafts was heading for the exit without notifying their star-jewelry-suppliers of seven years, Artcamp, about what they were doing, abandoning these craftspeople, after making very much profit from them, with over a million usd$dollars in sales.

How can they not be in violation of  fair Trade Principle 3? They are. Thanks in advance to the FTF for ruling against these thoughtless people who have abstracted craftspeople into oblivion. 

Only living breathing creative hardworking faithful human beings
could possibly make these beautiful handcrafted pieces. 
the craftswomen
gave Renice perfect product, they gave her perfect delivery for seven years
yet  she treats them like beggars, never considering whether the child of an artisan
would ever want to follow in the footsteps of his or her parent, or be anything but.

Fair Trade Federation, please agree with me
that the behaviour of Global Crafts has been
unacceptable, in this very sad case of Fair Trade Principle #3!
