Chewing Through World Poverty!

New Wilmington, PA – The Silk Road Fair Trade Market is excited to announce the launch of their new online wholesale business, the Eclectic Woodchuck.

In addition, focus is given to microloan funding, empowering women, building hospitals and schools, and environmental sustainability. Items offered include handcrafted note cards, journals, Christmas ornaments and batik art, along with fair trade fan favorites like coin purses and wallets from Turkey, ornaments from the West Bank, glass earrings from Chile, and much more!

“In 2006, I started with simple dream of making a small difference for people living in poverty and opened a brick and mortar store, The Silk Road Market,” said Wendy Farmerie, sole proprietor. “That dream has not only grown into a reality, but it has expanded. In working direct with my artisans, I’m putting food on tables, sending kids to school, and offering a stable income. It’s been a humbling experience, truth be told. Expanding into a wholesale business is the next step to make an even larger impact and one I’ve been working to achieve for years. Whether I’m designing a card with Naved in India or a Christmas ornament with Shuvo in Bangladesh, it’s now very personal. Not only are they my artisans, but they’re my friends, and we’re working together to make life a little better and help families struggling to survive.”
