Rising Tide Fair Trade offers a business model with people and planet in mind.
When possible, materials for our bags are purchased from local markets by independent business women or created from upcycled textiles and finished in cruelty free leather (from naturally deceased animals).
Rather than using a system of mass production, our bags are produced in a fair trade cooperative, which has a lower impact on the environment. Our first priority in shipping is ensuring your bag arrives on time and without any damage. When possible, we ship with gently used or recycled materials and request that our customers continue the cycle.
Our bags are made one at a time by artisans paid a fair wage and treated with dignity and respect. Inspired by a friend that found success and happiness after facing unimaginable adversity, Eva's Dream is our commitment to use a percentage of quarterly profits or products to support philanthropic programs that educate and equip young women with the skills needed to secure employment or start a business.
