Many of you will recognise the author of this inspirational book; Joe Osman, who joined us here at Traidcraft in our early days, has written this insightful book, featuring stories and anecdotes covering his extensive experience of travelling and putting fair trade into practice.
Traidcraft was a true pioneer of the fair trade movement and has played a major role in changing the landscape of ethical shopping.This book charts the history of Traidcraft from our birth in 1979, up until our 40th anniversary in 2019. The story is told through Joe’s eyes, as one of our longest serving team members.
Traidcraft was always an initiative, rooted in the Christian faith and those origins are explored, as are the challenges of putting faith into action through a different way of doing business. Including contributions from many ex-members of staff, including its founder, as well as external collaborators and producers, this is a fascinating history of a truly revolutionary company.
Whether you’re new to us here at Traidcraft and are hoping to learn a little more, or you’ve been with us from the start and wish for a trip down memory lane – this book is certain to spark emotions and fill in any gaps in your knowledge about fair trade and Traidcraft.
