Fair Trade Clothing, Toys, and Accessories for Your Family

Children's Handmade Fair Trade ClothingWhat we do speaks louder than what we say–and our children are watching every move.

By purchasing from fair trade companies, we support children and families everywhere. Inca Kids is a fabulous new company dedicated to promoting economic justice, revitalizing traditional crafting, and encouraging environmental sustainability.

You’ll find gorgeous, handcrafted toys, clothing and decorative items.

Fair Trade Handmade Arpillera PurseThe items crafted with the arpillera technique, hand appliquéd fabric collages, are my favorites. The vibrant colors and exuberant designs speak of hope and love. My toddler loves to carry around her small arpillera purse that is sweet, beautiful, and just the right size for a few choice toys and crayons.

Although Inca Kids maintains a small stock, most of the products are hand crafted by the artisans when you order. So, you are receiving a truly unique and special item.

Little ones will adore the fanciful woven finger puppets–clever details (the monkey holds a banana) and whimsical subjects (aliens and dragons added to the usual mix of barnyard and jungle animals) make them stand out from the usual collections.

And you do not have to pay extra for the reassuring knowledge that these craftsmen earned a fair wage.–these beautiful fair trade items are available for surprisingly reasonable prices. As Inca Kids explains, they are able to provide decent payment to the women who craft these gifts by cutting out several layers of middle men and giving a higher percentage of the profit to the artisans.

Fair Trade Handmade Musical ToysRead the stories of these Peruvian crafters and you’ll know that you’ve found a cause worthy of your support.

Recent recalls have inspired parents to not just seek safer toys and children’s products, but to also examine the origins of these toys more closely. We are challenging ourselves to care for our children and to model socially and environmentally responsible decisions, too. By purchasing fewer, high quality, fair trade toys, we can provide for our children, for their future, and for the global good.
