Loyalty through leather — fight the trade

Posted By on Fri, Mar 27, 2015 at 11:53 AM

Early in 2014, the Indy ventured to India with local nonprofit Yobel International to report on a business training aimed partly at combatting the sex trade.

We brought you this feature, "Trading Places." 

One source that was intentionally left out of that story was a couple named Sarah and Paul Beisly, who we did later introduce you to here, who are also working in Kolkata to liberate women from the trade via the sale of fair-trade craft items. 

Their business, The Loyal Workshop, finally, recently, launched with an "ethical leather goods store" featuring wallets, satchels and belts, currently. 

Shop there to support the company's mission or give them a like on Facebook to track their progress. 

You can also buy an "Advocate Wristband Pack" aimed at helping spread the word, which comes with several perks.
