Introducing ... Scarlet Threads

Let me introduce you to one of my favorite shops - Scarlet Threads.

Scarlet Threads is a compassionate boutique, specializing in gorgeous products designed and produced in rural Asia. The team at Scarlet Threads believes in providing safe and rewarding work to women in their local village, enabling them to provide for their own families.

In addition to paying fair wages and giving each woman an additional 5% of sale proceeds, Scarlet Threads also donates 5% of each sale to a number of development projects that help impoverished families living in their local community.

What gorgeous items can you find in the Scarlet Threads shop? They have girls summer dresses, reversible aprons, shoulder bags … and the great thing is that everything sold provides assistance for families in need. They say it so much better than me … “When you purchase one of our beautiful hand-crafted products, you become part of our story by providing a woman with safe and rewarding work”. Fantastic eh?!




To find out more, make your way over to the Scarlet Threads shop http://www.scarletthreads.org ... I know you'll love them as much as me!
