I just discovered the label Bhalo. It's totally fair trade and has its cotton hand loomed and hand embroidered by women in rural Bangledesh. Bhalo not only provides these women with empoloyment and training, but they give them education/childcare for their kids, basic healthcare, and a respectful work environment.

Check out more of their beautiful pieces HERE
