We’re a global maker-to-market movement that addresses economic injustice. Because every handcrafted object has a life of meaning behind it. We’re a way for you to shop with intention for ethically-sourced handcrafted wares - and to share in the joy of empowering makers in ten thousand villages.
We’re more than a store
As a pioneer of fair trade, we do business differently, putting people and planet first. That means you can trust that every purchase and donation you make directly impacts the life and community of its maker in an under-resourced community. Together we break the cycle of generational poverty and ignite social change. #LiveLifeFair
We are committed to putting people and planet first ...
Ensuring makers earn a fair, living wage in safe working conditions
Investing in partnerships that empower women and marginalized communities
Caring for the Earth
Celebrating craft and culture
Moses Kirimi, an artist and educator by trade, has a passion for sculpting, painting, and wood carving. He started the craft section of his business as a way of giving unemployed young adults, with little education, a chance to earn a living wage, provide a strong foundation for their future, and inspire creativity.
We create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships.
One day all artisans in developing countries will earn a fair wage, be treated with dignity and respect, and be able to live a life of quality.
