Each purchase you make from DANDELION will help our artisan weavers earn a higher living wage. We have partnered with two amazing non-governmental organizations to ensure ethical, fair, and sustainable business practices. Turquoise Mountain is a non-profit, non-governmental organization regenerating the Old City of Kabul, reviving Afghan arts and architecture, and creating jobs, skills, and a renewed sense of national pride for Afghans. STEP is a Swiss non-profit organization promoting fair trade of handmade carpets. As a STEP certified company, DANDELION commits to comply with a comprehensive set of fair trade standards. These include good working and living conditions, fair wages, the prohibition of child labor, and environmentally-friendly production.
