At The Green Giraffe, they believe in fair trade practices with a focus on empowering their local Freetown, Sierra Leone (West Africa) community towards social and economic self-sufficiency.
Their products not only provide the artisans a steady stream of work at above market wages in good working conditions, but they are also broadening their skillset by applying methods and techniques which are new to them while working on garments they are less familiar with.
Locally sourced materials and local artisans means that each product they sell provides a valuable contribution to the supply chain.
Their products are crafted by a team of talented weavers and tailors selected thorough equal opportunity practices.
What's more, most of their products are up-cycled from discarded clothing or scrap fabrics, making them sustainable and environmentally friendly!
Their mission is to continually grow & create influential goods, promoting compassion & respect while impacting the communities in which they work.
The Green Giraffe works alongside Compassionate Paws International by donating a portion of its proceeds in addition to providing handmade dog collars for the free roaming dogs in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Goods purchased from The Green Giraffe in its own small way makes a difference in communities throughout Sierra Leone.
