Caring About the Makers - Sala Verde Design
Very much the foundation for Sala Verde’s ethos is knowing and caring about the makers. Whereever possible we go to the workshops of our suppliers to see first hand the environment their people work in as well as to understand the making process of our products. We’ve met with a few concerns along the way and have chosen not to work with those suppliers. The suppliers we do choose to work with are more often than not, amazing, caring people. They employ people from their local communities. They train and upskill these people and support their progress. One of our suppliers drives for hours into the jungle to give beading work to village women enabling them to contribute financially to their families and to feel that their skills are valued. We applaud that concern.
