Vendor registrations are continuing to roll in, and we'd like to introduce another:
Based at Pittsburg State University under the direction of Enactus, Krimson Kultuur is a non-profit, student-owned and operated, fair trade online store that displays and sells the work of artisans in third-world and developing countries, as well as local artists. The group believes in the principle of fair trade — the idea that people should receive just compensation for their work — and it strives to promote that purpose every day.
For several of its artists, Krimson Kultuur is the lifeline that offers them sustainable income. For some in third world countries who are forced to live off $1.25 per day, selling their creations is the only guarantee that they'll still have food on the table and a roof over their heads without having to turn towards illegal and exploitative industries.
Along these lines, Krimson Kultuur's work in the developing world has saved countless lives from the dangerous sectors of human trafficking and prostitution.
Enactus uses Krimson Kultuur for a student intern program that provides students with operations management training and experience while also covering all store hours. The group also uses the store to work with unemployed individuals to provide them valuable job skills and work experience that they can then add to their resume.
Stop by the Krimson Kultuur booth at our fair to buy a one-of-a-kind creation, including jewelry from Paraguay and India, and a new coffee and tea line!
