De Colores Fair Trade Gifts is a privately owned business. It was begun as an arm of a nonprofit and became a worker cooperative in 1997 — it was taken private sometime after 2002, when it was re-named "De Colores Trading Company."

De Colores offers handmade creations of native artisans including crafts, jewelry, music, and clothing. Proceeds from sales support indigenous families, organizations, and cooperatives from around the world.

2008-07-15 21:44:32   De Colores' support for indigenous organizations is still a feature of the store, but they DO appear to have some financial constraints and MAY not be a sustainable business in the long run. OTOH, all small businesses have some issues. —DougWalter


2008-07-20 14:08:39   More changes are afoot at De Colores, as shoppers might have guessed from the sales (e.g. 30 percent off jewelry, which must have reduced the inventory!). I was told that they will likely shut the doors until sometime in the fall, but reopen for Day of the Dead and the holiday shopping season. Wikizens, let's keep this updated when solid information is available. —DougWalter



2009-03-15 14:20:13   They're currently having a going out of business sale, but an employee told me they don't know when they're closing. —jsogul
