Robbing Disadvantaged Local Artisans

By paying artisans the lowest possible price for their goods, many retail outlets trap families and communities in a cycle of poverty.

creating quality of life through fair trade.

HOW IT WORKS

1. The Artisans

With the help of our community of suppliers, we find amazing artisans and groups that are making change in their communities and producing beautiful products.

2. The Store

We pre-purchase their products at fair trade prices and bring them to buyers in the U.S. By connecting consumers to curated selections of handmade products, we introduce them to the artisans around the world who make them.

3. The Result

Our suppliers give the artisans a 50% deposit once the order is placed and they are paid in full when the shipment is ready. This allows our artisans to build better lives for their families. Your shopping dollars allow us to continue our partnership with the suppliers and artisans.

PROVIDE WORK AND DIGNITY

for families across the world

By purchasing these products, you’re building a better world through fair trade.
