“PURE Labels is the first commercially available label using Fair Trade artisan paper.  This is a revolutionary new alterative for sustainable adhesive labels”, Rich Cohen, President of Distant Village.  The fair trade product category is more than $5B, and growing rapidly at more than 20% annually.  PURE Labels are aligned with the missions of specialty brands in fair trade, artisanal, and biodynamic segments such as coffee, chocolate, wine, textiles, body care, and more.
 
PURE Labels are manufactured by Distant Village, Inc. using the company’s exclusive fair trade label facestock made from their trademark blend of wildgrass and hemp.
“PURE Labels is a global leader in sustainable specialty labels. It is the only PSA label which is 100% recycle compatible, natural, and fair trade.”, stated Mr. Cohen.  “Label printers are the real winners because they finally have a sustainable solution which also performs like a champ with practically any printing technology.”
 
Currently the company is completing development of the next generation of sustainable labels, including a 100% compost-friendly sustainable PSA label and a wet-strength artisan PSA label targeted toward the wine and spirits segment.
 
"Through their membership in the Fair Trade Federation, Distant Village has displayed a full commitment to all fair trade principles.  By creating economic opportunities for craftspeople and developing innovative, eco-friendly products, Distant Village brings fair trade to the packaging industry in a new and exciting way." Renee Bowers, Executive Director of Fair Trade Federation.
 
Distant Village Inc. was founded in 2000 and headquartered in Chicago, IL, USA.  The company is an award-winning firm that manufactures innovative packaging, labels, and other products made exclusively from natural sustainable tree-free plant fiber.  Distant Village has earned international recognition as a leading innovator and pioneer in sustainable packaging and adhesive labels.  Distant Village is a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation.
