Many of the items that are common as fair trade gifts such as clock square, candle stands, and international Indian handicrafts are only available on soul of India through international trade. Fairly traded business dealings seek to compensate producers of these and any other items so that they may increase their standard of living via their own efforts and productivity, rather than pay them slave labor wages that rank among the injustices that happen all too often when laws about transparency and justified contracts are violated.
Today the handicraft industry is flourishing in every aspect, be it handicraft clothes, bed spreads, handicraft fashion accessories, and so on. Traditional designs and innovative styles have given traditional handicrafts a new dimension. Expert in handicrafts from each state showcase their skills in the handicraft products. Various trade fairs give us a chance to plunge in the handicraft world and choose our desired handicraft items.
Fair trade gifts are not any kind of charity, nor are they representative of welfare. In contrast, these products represent efforts to buy the products of mostly non-developed country producers who have something unique to offer Indians, and to then provide fair and justified compensation to the producers so that they are not just getting by but are instead being rewarded for their efforts with "real" profit margins. The product quality is very high, and must be maintained as such by the developing nation producers. These producers are being paid good, fair wages in exchange for useful goods- not cheap trinkets
However, as trade fairs do not happen every day and in case we miss any trade fairs, we should not be disheartened at any cost because the flourishing handicraft industry is easily reachable through the Internet. Easy accessibility and faster services make Internet options the most sought after. The idea is to get wonderful and exquisite handicraft product options at appropriate prices.
