Below are just some of the artisans that we support

As an ethical company…  We try to ensure that the artisans who make our products get a fair wage, there is no exploitation (for instance of children), women are treated equally, and the community and those most in need of work benefit from our trade. Sustainability is also a key principle for us and our makers.
