Product Description

Wunder workshop are working directly with a smallholding farm and social enterprise in Herat, Afghanistan, to promote and create sustainable value chains for their exquisite, high-grade Golden Saffron.

This project is working in partnership with The Ethical Fashion Initiative (EFI), which is a flagship programme of the International Trade Centre, a joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization that is funded by the European Union.

Golden Saffron grown in Herat is proving a vital source of legitimate employment in the country by replacing the cultivation of lucrative but illegal opium poppies – in particular for women, who typically have fewer opportunities to earn an income in these rural areas.

The golden threads hold more than just an enchanting and powerful aromatic flavour, they also support women, their families and marginalised entrepreneurs who have been affected by years of conflict and instability.

“Red gold” as it is known, is also renowned to have many health benefits and is used traditionally as an aphrodisiac, recent studies have found it useful as an antioxidant and for weight loss.

Its holds an incredible aroma that is a wonderful addition to both sweet and savoury dishes. The vibrant yellow colour adds both depth and delight to simple rice dishes and in baking. A small pinch of saffron is enough to brighten and enliven any dish.

BUY A PRODUCT.
PLANT A TREE.
As a thank you for shopping with us and helping to support ethical business, we’ll plant a tree in the tropics on your behalf through our charity partner   TreeSisters.org

We’ll do this every time you shop with us, at no extra cost to you.

UK consumers made 39.4 billion payments in 2018 – if a tree were planted for every one of those transactions things would change very quickly. We want to show other companies – and you – that it’s not difficult to do things differently.

One day it will be as normal to give back as it is to take. Until then, when you shop with companies that don’t embed restoration into your transactions, you can plant a tree yourself every time you buy something! (It costs much less than you might think…)

Thank you for caring and for your support. You’ve just changed the future.

  Katie and Jarvis
