Xanvil works closely with other organizations such as altromercato to assist the artisans with whom we work enter the "Fair Trade" marketplace. We are also currently involved in the development of a network of latinamerican artisans and artisan organizations to improve market conditions for artisans across the americas.
Fair trade is an organized social movement and market-based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability. The movement advocates the payment of a higher price to producers as well as social and environmental standards. It focuses in particular on exports from developing countries to developed countries.
