About Ten Thousand Villages San Antonio
Welcome to Ten Thousand Villages in San Antonio!
Located just down the street from the historic Pearl Brewery building, we are a fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home décor, jewelry, accessories and gifts from around the world. 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. Enjoy our store and the fun shops and Farmers Market at the Pearl in the heart of San Antonio, TX.
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.
