SLATE + SALT
SLATE + SALT was founded by an avid traveller who felt the need to share her stories and finds with the world. She recognized the beauty of hand crafted products as opposed to mass produced goods made in factories. She saw an opportunity to give a worldwide customer base to artisans in rural villages. Through frequent trips and partnerships with Fair Trade cooperatives, she fosters relationships to bring ever-changing handcrafted designs to the globally minded nomad.
With this brand you will own products that are made with love in a sustainable way! With every purchase you are enabling rural artisans in underdeveloped nations care for their families and continue to live in their own communities.
When you purchase ethically produced goods you are helping to break the cycle of poverty by supporting programs that empower women entrepreneurs and educate children. Fair trade 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. All products you purchase have an impact on the social change of our world.
Because products are handmade and hand-dyed each piece is special, one of a kind, and slight variations occur.
