The Western Australia Fair Trade Collective has received their first pictures and a video of this jute braiding machine. Funds raised at the Light Up Fair Trade event in May 2019 on World Fair Trade Day, went toward toward this project - take a look!
A message from the project’s director:
“Kind greetings and thanks so much for all your good work for collecting donations for our artisans. The artisans have installed their desired drawstring machine recently. As I have mentioned before this machine will help them a lot in developing their new products from jute strings. We are expecting that 15-20 artisans will be able to increase their income immediately as the machine has been in operation from the day one”.
