Handmade in and fairly traded from Vietnam: Craftbeauty is an all-women artisan organization aimed at helping rural women earn a regular monthly salary to support themselves and their families. Working with a variety of fabrics in their native Vietnam, the artisans of Craftbeauty have managed to create opportunity where before prospects looked dim. Originally rice farmers living in a small cultivated area subject to the whims of weather; their farmland began vanishing to a new threat - development of apartment housing. They have a workshop where women can come together to work, but also have opportunities for women to craft from home. Now the primary source of income in their village, these women earn more than three times what they made farming rice, allowing them to provide a better future for themselves and their families.
