Graduation Stoles

Fair Trade Your Graduation!

You may have arrived on campus already knowing about fair trade or just joined your campus group out of curiosity, but involvement with fair trade on campus is sure to have deepened your commitment and strengthened your skills at communicating the importance of being a fair trade consumer. Now you can share this message with family and friends at your graduation by wearing a fair trade-made graduation stole!

Yabal, a cooperative of women weavers in Guatemala, offers University student groups handwoven graduation stoles. Each one is handwoven and hand-embroidered with your organization’s acronym, year, and in the colors of your choice. For these custom graduation stoles, we require a minimum order of 20 stoles (can be different colors and acronyms) and four weeks for order fulfillment.

And especially for Fair Trade campus groups and individual seniors that want to express their commitment to fair trade, Yabal offers graduation stoles hand-embroidered with “Fair Trade” and  “Class of 2017”. These do not require a minimum order amount, but we need at least 3 weeks to ensure delivery on time.
