This keychain was made by an artisan in Mongolia, who works with a fair trade co-operative.

Mary & Martha was founded with the express intention of running an ethical, fair and transparent business that has a primary objective of supporting the growth of small and micro indigenous businesses in Mongolia. They believe that they should show  that ethical, fair and transparent businesses can compete head to head with main stream businesses, without major donations and without running at a loss  because many said it was not possible in Mongolia.  They follow the principles of “Unashamedly Ethical” personally and corporately and adhere to the 10 Fair Trade principles used by the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). They have been members of WFTO since 2011. Currently all of their business is in the hand craft or semi hand made product sectors.  These sectors tend to be non-automated, using hand tools or basic cottage industry type machines and so employs more people to step up production rather than buying more machinery.  We try to take skills and cultural aspects passed on from generation to generation and utilize them to make products that appeal to other cultures, without loosing the indigenous aspects.
