This fair trade home and lifestyle brand has had long-term partnerships with talented artisans in Ethiopia, Guatemala, and Kenya who work in women-led small businesses. By developing healthy, sustainable, and profitable partnerships, they are able to bring artisanal handcrafted pieces to a global market. These artisans create beautifully unique natural fiber handspun and hand-woven textiles and baskets.
Employing a longstanding and rich traditional art form, these artisans spin and weave 100% locally grown environmentally friendly high-quality fibers. The pieces are then washed and accented with AZO-free dyes.
Handcrafted with skillful hands and careful attention, each piece has unique qualities in natural texture, softness, and color. They are committed to providing high-quality jobs to their suppliers as well as unique products for their customers.
By creating a sustainable niche for these artisans, they help to ensure their craft supports the health, education, and economic stability of their families. They believe that conscious consumerism — in which the act of buying is also one of giving — is a powerful way to effect change.
