Ten Thousand Villages' mission is to 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.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping artisans in developing countries receive fair wages. Our retail store sells beautiful, unique handicrafts from over 30 developing countries around the world.
Our products include home furnishings, musical instruments, coffee, chocolate, jewelry, and toys. Through fair-trade practices, the artisans who produce these products are paid fair wages up front. We ensure that our artisans are operating under safe working conditions and are producing environmentally-friendly goods.
