SLATE + SALT was founded by a travel junkie who became obsessed with handmade products from some of the most rural, developing countries around the world. SLATE + SALT is a socially responsible, Fair Trade company providing sustainable income to talented artisans in 14 countries. They work closely with small social enterprises to facilitate dignified working opportunities in areas of extreme poverty. Their curated collection of jewelry, bags, scarves, and home goods are modern yet handmade by traditional techniques. Each piece tells the story behind these unique places and artisans you will love learning and sharing!
Fair Trade produced goods help break the cycle of poverty by supporting programs that empower women entrepreneurs and educate children. It restores dignity to the artisans and assists women to become role models to their communities. The economic empowerment gives them the opportunity to stay in their villages and they will be less likely to migrate to urban areas.
We currently carry products from 21 brands/artisan groups located in 14 countries around the world.
