Traidcraft

The Let it Grow appeal is once again pointing the spotlight at the incredible work Traidcraft is doing in some of the world’s poorest countries. Every pound donated to Traidcraft’s Let it Grow appeal will go to support initiatives such as the FIVE project (Flourishing in Vulnerable Environments) which to date has benefitted an estimated 30,000 people.  This project is teaching some of the poorest farmers in developing countries how to cope better with the effects of climate change, learn new skills and become organised to operate better in groups rather than in isolation, and give them access to more accurate weather forecasts.  It’s transforming lives.


An exciting new craft brand, Artisans Fair, will gradually replace the Traidcraft branding on many craft products over the coming months.  The Artisans Fair range will showcase the handicraft skills of talented artisans and will feature more premium, natural and recycled materials, while its sister brand, Little Treasures, will continue to offer a choice of affordable gifts and treats.  The new Little Treasures collection will be launched in August.
