We are delighted that you have found our website and are interested in what we do. As a group of mainly volunteer workers we strive to bring fair trade to the world of art. All the people we work with are from disadvantaged backgrounds throughout the world and live below all established poverty lines.
By working with us we strive to bring them a fairer income for their products where they are not taken advantage of. Because most of their work would need to enter a very long chain of middlemen to get to a consumer in the US, there is practically no income for these people.
We cut out those middlemen and deal directly with the artist. We pay them a lot more for their products than they could achieve on their local markets and most importantly we pay them up front.
Through our volunteer force we have established great relationships with the shipping and transportation industry. This has reduced our costs giving us more opportunity to pay more to artists.
If you would like to support us you can do so by either buying our products, introducing us to new artists or becoming a volunteer. Please use our contact page or call into us for more information.
