Global Crafts curates socially responsible products from artisan groups around the world. Global Craft's mission is to offer income-generating opportunities to artisan groups in developing countries by bringing beautiful products to mainstream markets. Global Crafts has evolved since its early days -- it all began with a container shipment from Kenya and has grown to a broad reach with Fair Trade imports from over 20 countries. The company was founded in 2002 by Peace Corps volunteers who saw a wonderful opportunity to help craftspeople sell their products in international markets and create sustainable livelihoods. Global Crafts was born. Over the years, Global Crafts has maintained strong roots in Africa, but expanded to many other countries. The company brings over 2,000 products to mainstream markets. Global Crafts is proud to be a member of the Fair Trade Federation. Fair Trade is an alternative business model that values people, the planet, and profits equally. More than 1/5th of the world's population live on less than $1 per day. Fair Trade aims to combat this widespread poverty by providing a global commerce platform for economically disadvantaged producers. Many of their products work with recycled and sustainable materials.
