Mission Statement

We create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships.

Description

Ten Thousand Villages is the oldest and largest Fair Trade organization in North America, selling artisan-crafted personal accessories, home decor, and gift items from around the globe.

Fair Trade Organizations (FTO) are non-governmental organizations designed to benefit artisans, not to maximize profits. They market products and agricultural organizations based in low-income countries, providing consumers with products that have been fairly purchased from sustainable sources.
