Illuminate's Annual Fair Trade Holiday Sale for Our Readers, Members & Facebook Followers

Illuminate Fair Trade has been working with the same cooperative of Guatemalan artisans since 1999. Their patchwork quilts and other textiles are absolutely breathtaking and not available anywhere else in the United States. Each product we offer is unique, authentic, and individually handcrafted.

Illuminate Fair Trade is a "social business" and we adhere to "Ethical Trading" principles established to support artisans in the developing world. Every product we sell was created by artisans in a "Sweatshop Free" environment. Each item you purchase assists them in building a better life for their families. We are members of Green America's Fair Trade Alliance.

And, over the years, they have received quite a bit of attention from the media including...

Our Patchwork Quilts were featured in "Lucky Magazine". They said, "Their quilts are simply beautiful." Our Quilts & Pillow Covers were also featured in "Bust", "Yoga Journal", "Domino", "People's Style Watch!" and "Latina" magazines, and our Quilts were used to create Guatemalan themed sets on episodes of "Law & Order, Criminal Intent" and "Saving Grace". And our Guatemalan Pillow Covers were featured in "Time Out New York's Holiday Gift Guide."

We would love to have you visit us this Holiday Season, so we are offering 15% off all the products in the store until December 31st. Just use coupon code ILLUM2 during check-out. See our store here.

Have a great weekend and Thank You for your support!
