Every Skipping Girl purchase helps to provide a secure and sustainable income for our women artisans.
Our communities in India work on the basis of Fair Trade Principles which means that all of our artisans are paid fairly and also provided with community support, skills development and a happy work environment, with the option to work from home. Many of our artisans are from marginalised communities and have little or no education. Weaving our totes offers them the opportunity to utilise their traditional craft skills and to preserve these skills for generations to come.
By choosing a tote from Skipping Girl, you are helping us provide consistent work and fair wages to our artisans, allowing them to become financially independent and to plan for their future.
