The artisans of the Guatemalan highlands create some of the loveliest textiles. The variety of color and patterns reveals a range of weaving techniques rooted in ancient traditions. Your purchase supports them economically, while allowing them to preserve their traditions.
Historically, these artisans have faced low wages and discrimination. Leeloo exists to provide consistent economic opportunity for artisans. All of our weavers work from their homes, on their own schedules, and set their own wages. Your purchase allows these weavers to support their families and gives them access to educational resources to develop new skills.
Leeloo is strongly committed to ethical trade and fair trade principles. Fair trade encourages companies to embrace corporate social responsibility, particularly as it relates to making products in developing countries. Examples include paying fair wages to our artisans, supporting marginalized communities, and minimizing our environmental impact.
As a new company, Leeloo is not yet eligible for membership with the major fair trade organizations, but that doesn't mean that we don't incorporate fair and ethical trade practices into our business. For Leeloo, fair and ethical trade is a way of life. It means that we pre-vet and actively monitor our supply chain to ensure that they adhere to the Fair Trade Federation's Fair Trade Principles. It also means that we go out of our way to ensure that we're leaving a positive impact on the communities with which we trade.
