Global Crafts 9

   Posted by: admin   in

This is a faithful account of correspondence between Renice Jones of Global Crafts
and Martin Rizzi, a friend of the craftswomen of Tecalpulco and Taxco El Viejo.

In Purple Text is explanatory text, added later.

Renice Jones (Global Crafts): What does Emi expect to achieve by sending a letter to the FTF?

 Martin Rizzi: Evidently Emi was encouraged by the fact that the FTF helped the cooperative when a Fair Trade member came to their village taking with her a set of production samples of their stone mosaic jewelry line then disappearing. The FTF to its credit intervened and forced this person to at least give them an order.

Renice Jones: I am sorry if Emi was misled that we had a contract to purchase $5K a month. It is simply not true – we would never enter into that kind of a contract. At the end of 2015, the women asked if we could do some consistent ordering and we said for 2016 we would TRY to order $5K a month – no guarantee, just an attempt. We were able to purchase $67K in 2016.  And this year we ordered $43.5K with no agreement.

 This is my comment on this exchange of GMails that took palace on December 18th 2017:
Yes the Global Craft purchases plummeted by 35% in 2017, with NO advice or warning given to the artisans, while the
 prices being paid were discounted, having been set as long as seven years ago.

Global Crafts sales dropped because they have simply NOT promoted the product.

Additionally, Renice Jones declines defend them within the elite Fair Trade inner circle, nor does she promote them to her customers. By their own account,  Global Crafts has made more than $500,000usd profit off of Artcamp jewelry since 2010. Now this company seems to be heading for the exit with this loot, while claiming that the cooperative, which never made anything from all their hard work but a bare subsistance, is the victim of “blind market forces”. Still Global Crafts sells prodigious amounts of Artcamp jewlery, because it is a great product that the public prefers. IMO the problem here is rooted in the fact that Renice does not want to share with the producers.

Renice Jones: Has Emi mentioned that she sent me an email attempting to have us purchase her leather products outside of the Art Camp cooperative?  She used the maria.at.artcamp@gmail.com email so I did not response because it could have been read by others and I felt that what she was asking was inappropriate.

Martin Rizzi: Emi has presented her leather accessories product to Global Crafts on multiple occasions over the years. She joined the cooperative because she was told by the other women that she would find a Fair Trade market for her product. What’s wrong with that? What’s this insinuation about?

 Martin comment: Yes, indeed, WHY is Renice insinusating that Emi has done something she would hide from the other members of the cooperative by offering her leather products? Emi came into the cooperative hoping to find a market for her traditional work, yet Renice pretends that Emi has committed a sin by asking her to consider carrying her leather goods so she can get her shop going. http://artisan-owned-jewelry-handmade.com/cuero-blog/

Yes, Emi addresses her timidly. She is trying to see if there is a way she can get out of this situation by working herself, with her tools in her leather workshop. But Renice tries to use it against here. What is the reason for the animus of Renice? The previous contact person of Artcamp previous to Emi was Gabriela and she left to go to the USA to study. At the time she said that Renice is a very cold person.
