Scarlet Threads Compassionate Boutique

>> Monday, August 9, 2010

While on Twitter, I recently discovered Scarlet Threads.
Scarlet Threads Fair Trade Boutique
Scarlet Threads Compassionate Boutique, specializes in unique, beautiful, hand-crafted products designed and produced by talented seamstresses in rural Asia. The perfect gift for bridal showers, holidays, or any special occasion, all Scarlet Threads products are fairly traded, a growing global economic movement that uses trading partnerships to alleviate poverty. In Fair Trade, artisans are paid fair wages and provided safe working environments.

"Like any piece of cloth, many threads came together to form Scarlet Threads," says the founder. She describes how they moved to China in 2007 to work with special needs' orphans. They came to learn that many children become orphans due to poverty. Scarlet Threads was created as a way to transform their community in China, help alieviate poverty and improve the lives of so many with Fair Trade. Hats off to Scarlet Threads for being the change they want to see and making a difference!

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet,
regardless of time, place, or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle,
but it will never break."
- A Chinese Proverb


This proverb inspired the name choice- Scarlet Threads represents "the ways we are all connected. No matter what country we call home, as women we care about the same things -- our children and our families. When you purchase a Scarlet Threads product, you become intricately connected to a woman half a world away. You give her the chance to provide for her family in a safe and dignified way, and you make our vision a reality."

Now let me tell you the Scarlet Threads Shop has some really cute really reasonable items making it easy to do good!
girls dress
Desiree Girls Summer Play Dress
This girls dress, in shades of purple, teal, and brown, features a sash in the back and coconut buttons from neck to hem along the front. So cute!

They also have a huge assortment of really beautiful aprons for adults and for kids and fun purses.



Since I know you will fall in love with the Scarlet Threads fair trade fashions, I have an extra special treat to make them even more affordable! Just use code "TeesAndAprons" for 10% off! You can also check out Scarlet Threads on Facebook and/ or Scarlet Threads on Twitter to see their latest arrivals and specials.

Thanks so much for posting about our little project! We have high hopes, but we wouldn't come close to attaining them without help from MWYT Blog and others like you.

Best!
