Since the 1908's, MarketPlace: Handwork of India has been a way of life for 480 low-income women artisans who lead fair trade cooperatives that produce sustainable clothes & accessories, while also undertaking social action that affects their families and communities. The artisans are directly involved in all aspects of the daily operations, including planning, production, management, profit sharing and social programs. On each piece of MarketPlace clothing is sewn the words, "Dignity, Not Charity," underscoring the message that these women are building and running successful businesses, and successful lives. The artisans create collections of handmade, vegetable dyed, ethnic clothes, accessories, gifts, and home decorations using traditional processes in addition to working with organic cotton knits.
