Pil Bredahl, Liselotte Risell and Henriette Melchiorsen are the three Danish women that make up FairTrade Designers, a group dedicated to blending Scandinavian design with indigenous craft from around the world. Fair trade and fair play are the underlying concepts that drive these designers, and a recent project with the Chinese women who do embroidery for Threads of Yunnan resulted in a series of handmade textiles that are part of the Danish Crafts' Collection. FairTrade designers give us some insight into what it is like to work with these craftspeople.
