About Me:
"Poverty prevents peace." These words from Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus inspired me to visit his home country of Bangladesh to observe how they are solving complex problems of poverty. I visited seven Fair Trade paper making workshops in the rural jungles of Bangladesh and witnessed their wealth of creativity and determination to overcome poverty. Most of my customers come with an eye for good design who, by buying Fair Trade, want to make a difference in women’s lives and bring our world a little closer to peace.
