About Us

Ten Thousand Villages Walnut Street in Philadelphia, PA, 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.

Center City welcomed Ten Thousand Villages into the community for the holidays; now we’re making the temporary space our permanent home!

Ten Thousand Villages is a global maker-to-market movement. Creating opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income, we bring their products and stories to our markets through long-term fair trading relationships. Stop in to find that one-of-a-kind gift and positively impact our global artisan partners.

When you shop with intention, you share in the joy.

 


Ten Thousand Villages helps to preserve crafting traditions passed down through generations, connecting customers with other cultures and their artistic heritage and creating beauty in the world.
