Bunyaad is the Newest Fair Trade Federation Member

FTF Logo

We are thrilled to be approved as the newest Fair Trade Federation (FTF) member this week.

Bunyaad is the first fair trade rug business to join the FTF. The FTF is the trade association that strengthens and promotes North American organizations fully committed to fair trade. Bunyaad is proud to be included with the more than 240 FTF members who have one primary purpose: to support artisans and farmers in developing countries through the practice of fair trade. Fair trade guides each and every trading decision that FTF members make – just like Bunyaad has always operated, right from the beginning.

Thanks to stellar work by Bunyaad staffer Doug Horst, we sailed through the FTF application process and easily qualified for membership. The FTF family includes a number of other highly respected fair traders in Canada and the USA like: Ten Thousand Villages and its branded stores, SERRV, Equal Exchange and Level Ground Trading. Also, a number of fair trade retail stores that host Bunyaad rug events are individually FTF members as well, for example Just Creations in Louisville, Kentucky; The Work of Our Hands in Pella, Iowa and One World Goods in Rochester, New York.

At Bunyaad we are very much looking forward to participating in the vibrant FTF community. We are joining a community of businesses and organizations that are, just like us, fully committed to fair trade. FTF members go above and beyond to create opportunities for disadvantaged artisans and farmers around the world.

Some benefits of FTF membership that are exciting to us:
