Die ersten 6 Monate!

The first 6 months!

Launched in the midst of a global crisis - 100% social.

 

FairSilk buys exclusive silk scarves directly from producers in hard-to-access developing countries. News from Turk-menistan, Azerbaijan and Myanmar. Tourism in these countries has completely collapsed. Many people are at acute risk of falling back into poverty.

 

But thanks to the regular orders from FairSilk, the weavers in Myanmar, for example, always had enough work, even during the pandemic. Then came the military coup. At the moment, we don't know what the future holds for Myanmar. But that is exactly the idea behind FairSilk social enterprise: to establish a direct trading relationship with people from those countries that no one else works with because it is too difficult and too risky. 

 

FairSilk is 100% socially conceived: Proceeds are continuously reinvested in the producers. In addition, a donation of CHF 10 per sale goes to the education initiative Teach a Child - Africa in Kenya. In 2020, FairSilk was already able to donate CHF 800, which is more than one school year for one child.

 

This year we want to exceed this amount. Spread the word and recommend our scarves as a stylish gift with real added value. The scarves will be sent in a reusable satin pouch with project information in English and German. 

 

FairSilk would like to thank the fantastic photographer Michael Schär of Raw'Filers for the lovely and professional shootings!
