Changing the World While Shopping the World
Bajalia collaborates with artisans in some of the most difficult places in the world to develop timeless pieces that reflect the ancient artistry of these global entrepreneurs. We work beyond the guidelines of Fair Trade to provide fair wages and sustainable employment opportunities to economically disadvantaged artisans and entrepreneurs worldwide. We also develop products that are highly desired in the Western and European markets. Bajalia educates consumers about the value of purchasing products that support living wages and non-exploitive working conditions in the developing world.
When you buy something made by a person, there is something extremely special and valuable there, and you do feel it. The consciousness with which a thing is made is often more important than the thing itself.
