Our mission is to build sustainable partnerships with artisans from around the world, by connecting them with customers through our fair trade shop. We seek to empower female artisans to rise above poverty and support their families.
Our handmade goods showcase the artisans’ traditional skills and their dedication to preserving their artisanal techniques. We source all of the artisans’ products ethically and practice fair trade principles. We acknowledge the interdependency of people around the world and our responsibility to help others.
