OUR ARTISANS ARE AT THE HEART OF EVERYTHING WE DO.
We work with over 200 artisans across 10 different communities spread across the Philippines. Truly, there is no greater honor or joy. Every drop of their heart, soul, and spirit pours out in everything they do, in their families, in their communities, and not least in their craft.
Our artisans come from the regions of Bulacan, Bicol, Romblon, Pangasinan, Nueva Ecija, Paranaque, Taguig, Cebu, all rural or suburban regions close to big cities. This presents unique opportunities for them; they benefit from rich natural resource, and at the same time have access to an urban marketplace. They are, however, also more exposed to the gaping income and wealth disparities the Philippines faces.
WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS.
We are committed to fair trade. We strive to empower local communities and provide artisan families with a means to earn dignified income through fair wages and comfortable working conditions. Our artisan partners typically earn 41% above other available livelihoods in the region.
WE WORK TOWARDS A JUST SOCIETY.
Through our business practices, we aim to contribute towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals of No Poverty, Decent Work & Economic Growth, Reduced Inequalities, and Responsible Consumption and Production.
