Who made this product? Stuart Smith founded Silver Tree Design, because of his passion for fair trade and observation a closure of another fair trade business that had many commitments to communities and cooperatives whom needed help from alternative vendors. The two cooperative groups of artisans in Peru that Silver Tree Design partners with were part of that closure.
Why is it ethical? The harvesters from the first cooperative group ensure they only gather naturally expired butterflies. Once collected are all sold to Silver Tree Designs prior to being looked at, by doing this Silver Tree Designs are not discriminating against the bio-diversity of the butterfly species and keep a more stable income for the harvesters. Also, Silver Tree Designs pay fair and living wages to all their artisans with many additional supports.
