Tara Treasures : Brand Spotlight
Tara Treasures supplies eco-friendly and ethically made products for babies, kids, and cats! They are an Australian brand who design their products in Melbourne and manufacture from a cottage industry in Nepal, where fair wages support talented artisans and their wider communities.
Tara Treasures aim to create products that are both beautiful and functional. Their full range includes products for open-ended, educational, and imaginative play as well as stunning and unique decor pieces.
Tara Treasures' products are made from natural wool felt, which is a sustainable and renewable fibre. Their felt is GOTS certified (the Global Organic Textile Standard is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres) and its high-quality ensures that each item is durable, safe, and easy to clean.
Skilled artisans employ traditional felting techniques to handcraft each piece.
Tara Treasures supports 150 Nepalese women through employment, so they in turn can support their families and communities. In fact, the motivation to empower these women was a driving factor in the establishment of Tara Treasures more than 14 years ago.
The Nepalese artisans are paid fair wages in compliance with fair trading practices and the business has been Socially Audited by Amfori, a global business association that promotes sustainable trade, sustainable supply chains and sustainable business.
"We operate with integrity and uphold the highest ethical standards in everything we do.
We believe in treating all individuals with respect and dignity, both within our business and across our supply chains.
We work to improve communities one step at a time."
Tara Treasures embodies the values we hold dear at The Toy Chest : providing gorgeous, high quality, eco-friendly gifts for kids that are ethically made. We can't wait to expand our range!
