“If someone would have told me 20 years ago that I’d be an ethical clothing and jewelry designer my mouth would have dropped open…who knew?”

Some people discover yoga in India, but Maureen Dunn found her zen by shopping its markets. Her journey with 'Mother India' began when she spent four months traveling the subcontinent on a round-the-world trip. Soon, she decided to make yearly buying trips, importing everything from antique wall hangings to leather shoes. As her business blossomed, so did her understanding of the poverty that exists for much of the Indian population. She realized that her buying power could make a difference and began seeking out producer groups that pay their workers fairly and practice fair trade principles. Maureen now works with six organizations in India and Nepal that educate, employ, and empower women in marginalized communities.
