Made by Noah’s Ark
Noah’s Ark works with grassroots artisans to create unique handicraft items.
It is based in Moradabad, India which is renowned for its brass artistry and has carved a niche for its enchanting brass work across the world.
But this industry has long been plagued with inequitable practices that cripple the artisans; low wages, exploitation by exporters, and the need to self-financing expensive raw materials to complete orders.
In 1986, after six years witnessing the struggles of artisans first hand, Samuel Masih established Noah’s Ark International Exports. He wanted to change the foundation of the exporter-artisan relationship from fear, to trust in an effort to raise the artisans out of poverty and preserve their livelihood.
Noah’s Ark is the first and only Fair Trade certified exporter in Moradabad (member of WFTO and FTF India).
For over 30 years, the company has supported artisans and their families by:
- paying fair wages which are 10-15% higher than local standards
- long-term business investment and collaboration
- driving health and education initiatives
- profit-sharing with artisans
