We are creating life-changing work for women around the world through the fair trade of artisan jewelry and our Threads Sales Consultants lead the Threads Movement by launching their own businesses to show the world how to shop with heart. We sat down with our very first Threads Sales Consultant, Emily Valentine, to put another face on the Threads Movement, and showcase her inspiring story of actively participating in the fair trade movement by running her own Threads business!
1. Hi Emily! Thank you so much for taking time to chat with us! Why did you join the Threads Movement?
3. You’ve been with us from the get-go! Thank you! What is your favorite thing about being involved with Threads? What excites you about Threads?
4. What does fair trade mean to you?
It means healthy and viable communities around the world! I am motivated to purchase fair trade because it allows people to earn livable wages and keeps children in school and out of the workforce. I love that fair trade makes healthier families all around!
Motherhood to me is providing for my children in all ways that promote their healthy development. Part of that is taking care of myself and being an example to them through my activities and passions. Participating in the fair trade movement and Threads Movement allows artisan mothers to provide for their children and realize the dreams they have for their children. This is such a wonderful example for my children in how to make a positive impact in the world!
8. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I’ve always dreamed of traveling to Europe and in the U.S., I’d love to visit Montana.
My biggest inspiration is my family!
10. What are you currently reading? Anything good!?
Thank you Emily for taking time to chat with us! Your story is inspiring and thanks to your efforts and willingness, you’re helping create a world that trades fairly, eradicates poverty, and honors handcrafted over factory-made.
