Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer
The Mystic Lotus collection of ladies clothing, jewelry, spiritual items, musical instruments, home furnishings, and furniture are ALL purchased using fair trade practices one-on-one from all our suppliers directly. The collection is personally hand selected by our owner on an overseas buying trip each year to Nepal, India, Thailand and Indonesia. Knowing our suppliers personally means we see how our relationship can benefit their lifestyle with continued purchasing and this creates a sustainable income for them. This means new stock is constantly arriving!
Make sure to check out Mystic Lotus on Facebook for a photo collection of our S.E. Asian buying trips as well as updates on our festival and craft fair events and new in store promotions.
By continuously purchasing at cottage industry levels, we know exactly who makes our remarkable goods and we see first hand how this helps benefit our suppliers so they can continue to maintain their unique cultures.
We sincerely appreciate your interest in supporting these efforts……GLOBAL GIFTS FOR GLOBAL PEOPLE~
Blessings and Gratitude ~ Namaste to all.
