Jungle Shoes Totnes, Fair Trade principles through ethical, long term relationships

Fair trade

At Dragonfly Totnes we are dedicated to maintaining Fair Trade principles through ethical, long term relationships with our suppliers.

We supply an environmentally friendly product, using organic, sometimes recycled fabrics in our designs, and help our suppliers maintain a sustainable, profitable living.

Once a year we travel to South East Asia and deal directly with small family-run businesses and co-operatives, ensuring all our products are ethically sourced. By cutting out the middle men we ensure the profit goes directly to the manufacturers.

We never haggle over price. We also aim to establish a continuation of supply by buying from the same producers, which gives the families and their workers financial control over their lives. We thoroughly check the working conditions in which our products are produced and in particular ensure that child labour is not used in any part of the manufacturing process.
