ABOUT MARIGOLD FAIR TRADE:

Marigold works with a co-op of over 300 women from the slums of Mumbai, India and an association of 500 organic cotton farmers to make fashionable fair trade clothes and household items. Our beautiful line of products are vegetable-dyed and hand block printed or organic. Your purchase helps a disadvantaged woman make herself more economically self-sufficient and supports organic farming.

Hand block printing is an age-old artisan tradition that dates back to the 12th century in India, but it is an art form that is dying due to mass produced manufacturing. We believe in honoring and celebrating the tradition of block printing to bring you clothing that is a work of art created by hand.

Marigold is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation and Green America. We are also proud members of the South Sound Clean Clothes campaign- a coalition of concerned citizens raising awareness about the sweatshop industry, and challenging individuals as well as public and private institutions to create positive change by altering their purchasing practices and Washington Fair Trade Coalition.
