Marshall and I are new to Dignity Regained. We are friends with Tammy and were so excited for the opportunity to take over the store. Our heart has been breaking with the harsh reality that is human trafficking. We hope that through this store, we can help bring attention to human trafficking and the ways that we all can do something about it.
Dignity Regained exists to bring attention to the Fair Trade movement and the positive effect that it has on the fight against human trafficking. We are passionate about the abolishment of trafficking and by running Dignity Regained we hope to spread the word and help out a little and maybe someday help out a lot. We care about the creator of what we sell and our hope is that our shoppers do too. We want to help provide a connection that you just won't find anywhere. One-stop-shopping for fair trade!
All of our products are made using Fair Trade standards and made by artisans from around the world. The practice of fair trade gives the artisans fair wages and more opportunities. By developing more direct relationships with producers their lives can be significantly improved. They have a safe and clean working environment, financial and technical support, and respect for their cultural identity. It gives them and their children opportunities for education. We are excited to help them in their endeavors!
We also like to find products that are made by women, and organizations that are either women owned or have a high percentage of employees that are women. Women are more likely to invest their income into their family which prevents child labor.
I hope that you fall in love with the products and artists behind the products at Dignity Regained as much as I have. I enjoy curating our product selection and developing relationships with our awesome suppliers.
