New Items!

From our beloved artisans of Kisac Fair Trade, a stone carving cooperative in Kenya, a new piece called “To the Moon and Back.”

We are so pleased to carry another lovely product crafted with recycled saris! This bench is made by women artisans in Bangladesh working with Prokritee. Prokritee provides skills development training and jobs for poor rural women: widows, divorcees or heads-of-households, primarily rural, landless and with little or no income. As a result, women's standard of living is raised and more children are able to go to school. Prokritee creates and promotes income-generating projects that benefit the artisans, adhere to good safety and environmental standards, and have the potential to become self-reliant.

What herbs would you plant in this cute little set? Made by Vietnamese artisans in and around Ho Chi Minh City who collaborate with Ten Thousand Villages export partner Viet Lam Co.

This gorgeous new necklace, called “Meteor Shower,” is composed of bone, dyed mango wood, cast metal, and glass beads. The makers are part of CFM Market Linkages, and organization works with artisan communities throughout India, with most communities being in the Delhi / Uttar Pradesh region.
