Denise Attwood,
Men's Fair Trade Clothing
Don't forget men are conscious consumers, too! At Ganesh Himal Trading we have been selling men's fair trade clothing since our inception in 1984! Real men wear fair trade and we've proven that with steady sales of men's fair trade clothing! We are constantly hearing from men that fair trade clothing is hard to find so in this newsletter we wanted to remind you of the fact that men in the US are shopping now more than ever and they want a fair trade option! So, if you haven't tried our men's clothing (much of which women like too) take a look and better yet give it a try! It's yet another way to introduce Fair Trade into the market! As always, thanks for all of your amazing support. We couldn't do it without you!

A Runner's Tale

At Ganesh Himal we work directly with producer groups to develop unique and beautiful products. The process is long and involved and we take great care to create items that provide maximum benefit to our producers while creating an item that is a great seller for our customers. We  believe that the more hands involved in the production of a product, the more value is added to it. By designing products with many details, and different production steps  we involve more producer groups and help to employ more women.  The more women working, the more women are getting paid. The more women getting paid, the more children are educated, families are fed and communities are transformed.  Here's a small taste of the hands involved in getting just one of our products, a table runner from ACP,  produced and into your store.
