Our Mission

To produce handmade fair trade wholesale products to empower artisans to share their stories and art with the world. We want artisans to run their own business instead of working for someone else. We believe the people who are creating these goods should be in charge of their own company. Fair trade online stores can provide the essentials for these hardworking artisans to make a living, provide for their families, and better their lives. We want to ensure artisans receive proper pay, credit, and appreciation.
