Ten Thousand Villages brings to us art and craft from over 100 artisan groups in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

As one of the world's oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has built long-term relationships with artisans, based on mutual understanding and respect. Fair trade enables artisans to earn a fair wage and provides the opportunity for a better quality of life. One of the key aims of Fair trade is to improve the livelihood of disadvantaged people in developing countries and to change unfair structures of international trade.
And, nothing would be better if we can support these artisans by buying these beautiful artefacts from organizations which actively support Fair Trade!
