About Us

Marafiki - "friends" in Swahili - is a Fair Trade retailer selling at events, festivals, and online. We will also be open at 463 Main Street in Metuchen, NJ for November and December 2016. Owned and operated by Fair Trade Enthusiasts Linda Koskoski and Deborah Zupan, we sell unique, ethically sourced products such as jewelry, clothing, housewares, textiles, and much more. 
As members of the Fair Trade Federation, we make the deepest commitment to 360° fair trade. We undergo rigorous screening and strive to create positive change through all of our work: socially, economically, and environmentally. We work with small farmers and artisans in holistic partnerships built on trust. These relationships go beyond ensuring fair wages and safe working conditions — they empower producers to strengthen their communities and grow their businesses sustainably.
