Sasha the Fair Trade Doll, Bangladesh

We've been searching for the perfect fair trade doll and finally found her.  This precious rag doll was handmade with care by women in Bangladesh.  Her clothes are removable - an essential feature, we know.  What a meaningful gift for a child and a great way to introduce the idea of fair trade.

100% Cotton with polyester fill.

Measures approximately 18" tall and 10.6" wide.

ABOUT THE ARTISANS

This doll was handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in Bangladesh.  The cooperative now employs approximately 5000 women in rural areas, allowing them to work from home rather than in city factories.  This not only provides them with a fair wage, but helps prevent trafficking and other violent situations often found in cities.  This is true fair trade in action.
