‘SETU-The Bridge to Artisans’ is an exporter and wholesaler of fair trade, eco-friendly and handmade products from India. As its name suggests, the organisation acts as a bridge between underprivileged, marginalised artisans and the global market. At the same time, it also works towards the socio-economic development of the artisan communities as well as environmental well-being. All of their products are made by hand following strict Fair Trade standards. This means that all partner artisans make a fair wage, work under safe conditions, and are given assistance for community welfare initiatives. The organisation is currently working directly with more than 10,000 artisans across India.
The organisation also has a charitable wing by the name of ‘SETU- Society for Empowerment and Trade Upliftment of Artisans’ which serves to improve the social and economic standing of artisanal communities in different regions of the country. In addition to their project of promoting the socio-economic well-being of artisans, the non-profit society is also committed to addressing education, environment and health related issues.
