I think we should support fair trade art, because free trade has no guarantees for the producers. If a country is producing arts and crafts and selling it under free trade, that trade might end suddenly because of global prices of those goods and materials. What that means is that people who rely on this trade for their living can suddenly lose their entire income. In fair trade, that can't happen because partnerships and trade are for the long term.
That's also good for us because we can buy a diversity of goods. If a particular craft is only made in one place in the world because it's cheaper there and that's what the corporations want, there is only one option.
Do you see what I mean?
