Since 1976, SERRV International has partnered with artisans in India, providing a long-term trading partnership and interest-free advance payment for our orders. Through sales of their products, over 800 artisans in more than 50 cooperatives and family workshops throughout India receive needed income, interest-free loans, business and computer training, and advances to purchase raw materials. They also receive the support of welfare workers who help provide health clinics and education for children, increase sanitation, and improve living conditions.

Artisans in India use several techniques to create their variety of beautiful handcrafts, including metalwork, hand painting, carving, jacquard, macramé, and screen print.

Serrv’s Mission is to empower small-scale global artisans and farmers through long-term trading partnerships, helping them build sustainable employment, resources, rights, and a vision of hope in their communities.

One of the first fair trade organizations in the world, SERRV International began its mission by helping displaced European refugees trade their handcrafts for income after the Second World War. Since then, we've extended our reach to 24 countries worldwide, working to empower over 8,000 artisans and farmers every year by selling their beautiful handcrafts.
