We only collaborate with independent artisans, small artisan groups, non-profits and local social enterprises.
We do not partner with large enterprises that can already scale independently, but rather, seek to find artisans with valuable techniques, but have tremendous difficulty selling their products internationally.
Our approach combines a focus on both sustainability and transparency, ensuring the ethics of each and every piece on our online marketplace.
Artisans are guaranteed half of the gross profits, and our remaining profits are reinvested into helping more makers. As a social business, we do not pay out dividends.
When needed, we also provide zero-interest micro-loans, bulk raw materials purchases, operations training and design guidance.
