Welcome to The Silk Road Fair Trade Market!
Welcome to a global marketplace of extraordinary handcrafted gifts with amazing stories to tell. All of our products at The Silk Road are either fair trade certified, or ethically traded. Our artisans receive fair wages, safe working conditions, and community development. Some of our programs benefit microloans to women owned businesses, education for street children, rehabilitation of marginalized women, and the building of schools, hospitals, and safe drinking water systems.
Why The Silk Road? The shop is named after the Silk Road trading route. During the 1st century, this network of trading routes extended from eastern China through the Middle East and Northern Africa into Italy and Greece. As traders traveled into the various cultures and civilizations, they shared their art, religion, and technology which led to a cross cultural understanding. That's what I want to achieve here at The Silk Road Market. Not only fair trade for artisans around the world, but a cultural understanding and appreciation.
I invite you to step in to The Silk Road Market, see the extraordinary gifts our artisans make, and listen to the stories they have to tell.
