Art Oriental is Fair Trade Partner with Label STEP
We are Fair Trade Partners with Label Step since 2008. For us it is important to deal with producers who treat their workers fair and give them a chance to make a living from their hands work. Label Step is controlling the production in all important rug making countries and gives us the opportunity to choose producers that are willing to take their part in fair and responsible production.
Label STEP is committed to improving the working and living conditions of carpet weavers and fights abusive child labour. It also promotes environmentally friendly production methods.
To acheive these goals Label STEP is systematically monitoring the production sites of its licensees and their suppliers, and takes measures to ensure fair conditions. Label STEP operates at the local level in all major carpet-producing countries: in Afghanistan, India, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, Nepal, Pakistan and Turkey.
Label STEP was founded in 1995 by the development organisations Berne Declaration, Bread for All, Caritas Switzerland, Swiss Catholic Lenten Fund and Swissaid together with IGOT (Swiss Association for Clean Oriental Carpet Trade).
