#GreenFest Business Snapshot: JUST Designs
Company Name: JUST Designs
Mission: We’re a non-profit and in addition to paying the artisans a living wage, we have health, nutrition and finance programs in the villages we work with. We’re also Fair Trade certified.
Bestseller: The hand-made bags ($30) are very popular.
Personal favorite: We love the vests ($55)! We love seeing traditional textiles meet modern designs.
Favorite thing about Green Festival: Personally, this is our first time at Green Festival. At other events, people will be surprised that we’re charging $55 for a vest and will assume we’re making a lot of money off sweatshop labor. No one has suggested that to us here — people at Green Festival understand what Fair Trade is. They are willing to pay a little more to make sure the people who make their clothes are paid a living wage.
