The Sashka Co. bracelets that I received ( you could win one in my Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway! ) are absolutely beautiful! They are very high quality, very well made and are absolutely fab! I unfortunately do not fall into the one size fits all category I suppose, because I have not been able to fit one on my wrist 🙁 I am however plus sized…so I guess that must be it. My daughter has been able to wear them and they look stunning on her! My Mother also was able to wear one after rolling the bracelet back and forth several times and really forcing it on…so I am not really sure on the one size fits all thing! But if you don’t have super sized hands like me you are probably ok. These bracelets would make fantastic Christmas gifts, and I plan on giving at least one to a favorite relative of mine! Not only are they super beautiful, but proceeds from the sale of these bracelets go to something absolutely amazing! Please check out the info below to find out how your purchase can help!

A Living Wage
The fair trade pricing system enables workers to receive a livable income that covers their basic needs, which include food, shelter, education, and health care for their families. Fair Traders pay producers promptly and, if necessary, help them with access to pre-production financing.
Long Term Investment
Fair trade is about building direct, long-term and stable relationships between importers and producers. Long term contracts are a key component of Fair Trade because they provide artisans with consistent work and job security.
Fair trade actively encourages environmentally friendly production by promoting the use of local and recycled materials, sustainable techniques and organic practices. Fair trade farmers are required to implement integrated crop management and are given price incentives as well as ongoing trainings, to help facilitate their transition to organic farming.
Empowerment For Women
Fair trade provides employment without discrimination and ensures equal pay for equal work for both women and men. According to the Fair Trade Federation, 70% of fair trade artisans are women who are often the sole wage earners in their homes. Fair trade not only allows women to earn an income, while attending to their daily tasks, but also provides them with leadership positions and an equal voice in decision making.
Safe & Healthy Working Conditions
Fair trade means a safe and healthy working environment for artisans and farmers and no forced or exploited child labor.
Transparent Trade Terms
Fair trade ensures transparent trade terms throughout the supply chain. Finances, management policies and business practices of businesses engaged in fair trade are transparent.
