At People Tree, we abide by the Fair Trade standards and work to ensure compliance by our producers. People Tree was actively involved in writing the World Fair Trade Organisation standards. For more than 25 years we have been a leader in promoting Fair Trade fashion.

Fair Trade Organisations trade with concern for the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of small producers and do not maximise profit at their expense. They maintain long-term relationships based on solidarity, trust and mutual respect that contribute to the promotion and growth of Fair Trade. When needed, they help producers with access to pre-harvest or pre-production finance.

Fair Trade recognizes, promotes and protects the cultural identity and traditional skills of small producers as reflected in their craft designs, food products and other related services.
