Rescue the Children – Wings of Hope


wings of hope
Deb baskets: Raffia and leather woven baskets. Closes into 3 different sizes. $30.00

With the silly season only a few weeks away (can you believe it?!) it’s not long until we all get wrapped up in what to buy for our friends and family. If you’re a regular Market Roller and you’re reading this post, we probably don’t need to tell you how important important it is for us to think ‘sustainability’ when we shop. Of course it’s important to buy local and support our Australian neighbours, but let’s not forget about our brothers and sisters abroad who also need our support.

Wings of Hope trade in Fair Trade and handmade products that empower artisans to create a sustainable income for themselves and their families. It’s a great way to know that the artisans we purchase from and support, are well paid and have good working conditions. It’s comforting to know that none of their items come from ghastly sweatshop environments.
