WE CARE ABOUT FAIR TRADE, HAND-CRAFTED ART FORMS, + EMPOWERING GLOBAL COMMUNITIES


WHERE'S OUR FAIR TRADEMARK?

We're gonna be honest with you. Bohome + Roam isn’t currently fair trade registered; but, the larger suppliers we purchase from are members of the World Fair Trade Federation, Fair Trade Federation {USA} or Fair Trade Forum {India}. These superhero organisations are committed to the fair trade principles, and members pass an extensive application process.

Like us, the boutique brands and artisans that we partner with aren’t currently accredited with an ethical organisation - it's costly and we just don't have the resources. We do our best to check that they work in line with the principles of fair trade through authentic images, artisan stories, info about business operations, and in some cases, visiting the artisans ourselves.

Just like our artisans, we value you and your choices more than mojito on a scorcher summer day. We do our best to show you how we align with ethical practices. Which is why on our product pages, artisan pages, and blog you’ll find info about where and how our products are made. We want you to feel informed so you can make the best buying choice. We're a small family business, committed our values. We're striving to become accredited with an ethical body in the future and we’re grateful for your continued support as we grow.


WHY IS HAND-CRAFTED OUR JAM?

Each product takes many humans to complete it, often with the help of a tool or instrument such as a loom, plyers or soldering iron. Some of the parts we use in our jewellery are made using more advanced technology {machines are used to make our necklace chains, as this makes them stronger}.

All of the finished products are assembled using human hands.

Our collections are made in small batches and limited quantities, so you'll know you’re choosing a special product that is one of a kind. Every handmade product will have some variations in size, colour and design. We believe that these differences highlight the beauty of the human who made it, and beauty of the human who wears it {or has it in their Bohome}.

We source premium materials and do our best to choose natural and sustainable options. We also care about reducing our environmental impact and our ultimate goal is to work towards a closed loop model.


WHY GLOBAL?

With a passion for other cultures, our wanderlust takes us to exotic destinations. These experiences are both delightful, and heart-breaking. We live in a world where gender, ethnicity, social class, religion, marital status, age, living rurally, having an illness, physical or mental disability can lead to poverty and desperation.

We can make a big impact to people’s lives by choosing to partner with them. We focus on skills training, education, and sustainable employment for our artisans, so that we can bring their beautiful products to you here in New Zealand, and share their stories.

By working in this way, the artisans, their families, and communities are empowered to live a better life. Learn more about our Artisan groups here.

Bohome + Roam is not a charity - we just believe in doing business the right way.
