About Us

About Ten Thousand Villages in Cleveland, OH

Ten Thousand Villages in Cleveland, OH, is a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home decor, personal accessories and gift items from across the globe. Featuring products from more than 130 artisan groups in some 38 countries, we are part of a network of over 390 retail outlets throughout the United States selling Ten Thousand Villages products.

As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.

Did you know that this year Cleveland Heights Ten Thousand Villages won both "Best Place to Buy a Gift" and "Best Cleveland Heights Business" by Future Heights magazine??? Keep that in mind while you're doing your Holiday shopping this year and see what we're all about!!!
