Fair Trade Jewelry - Ethical Dilemmas part 2
Another reason people go with the fair trade organizations and wholesalers is because they do not really know the situation and if they did they would prefer to get more qualified ethical jewelry instead, since ethical fair trade jewelry comes from the artisans, not from the dealers. The most important point to note is that with ethical fair trade jewelry there is a guarantee that the artisan is treated with dignity and respect. It is NOT only a matter of how much one pays a craftsperson!
Raising the piece-price a little does NOT guarantee that the craftsperson will be able to support a family on income from that production. Ethical fair trade jewelry answers the ethical dilemma raised by Fair Trade which only provides an incremental monetary benefit without providing employment security or contributing to a sustainable economics for the producer community.
