You may have known about Fair Trade coffee, chocolate and bananas increasingly available for sale around Vancouver, but did you know that you could also purchase Fair Trade clothing, textiles and jewellery? If you are curious to learn more about where these products come from, what Fair Trade means for clothing and jewellery, or are ready to start browsing in anticipation of that December holiday that-will-remained-unmentioned – this is a great place to start.
YOU are invited to join La Mano textiles and clothing, Arte Filum Fair Trade jewellery, and a number of other Fair Trade vendors to celebrate the first day of their month-long Fair Trade Market on Thursday, November 3rd from 4:00pm – 8:00pm at the Cantu Building in Mt.

The Open House will feature music, samples of Fair Trade goods (including chocolates, coffees, and teas), and a feature interview with Jennifer of La Mano and Rocio of Arte Filum to learn more about Fair Trade.
