Jam Town specialises in importing multicultural fair trade rhythm and wind instruments from low income artisans and cooperatives around the world. They were established in 1995 and are based in North America.
What began as a passion for adventure, travel and music for founder John, turned into a business that connects people around the globe. Jam Town work directly with artisans, cooperatives and Non-Governmental Organisations in six countries.
Jam Town connects with hard working craftspeople in distant villages and in suburbs of large cities - many are following in the steps of their parents and ancestors. Jam Town's orders are based on a fair exchange of energy, effort and funds. Producers often rely on cooperatives to coordinate activity with foreign buyers. These organisations provide the crucial functions required for export management while acting in partnership according the ten principles of fair trade.
