Welcome to Shared Trade!
Shared Trade: A Fair Share for Women is a global community offering handmade products for home and body that represent healing and empowerment. We are mothers and grandmothers in Mexico, sisters in Ecuador, and friends from India. We are silk weavers from Cambodia, seamstresses from Ghana, and soap makers from Nashville and Milwaukee.
By connecting women from differing places and histories to the broader market, we increase the share of profit margin for women survivors of addiction, trafficking, violence and extreme poverty. Shared Trade social enterprise partners offer women a space to experience economic opportunity and healing community. This circle represents what we can do together, not alone.
Through Shared Trade, Thistle Farms extends its message of healing for women who have experienced the back-side of anger, the short-side of justice, the underside of bridges, and the inside of prisons. Together, truly, LOVE HEALS all around the world.
