Environmental sustainability

We believe that the experience of craft is more enjoyable when it heightens our connection to the earth and to each other. It is our policy to consider the entire lifecycle of our products by operating with the following sustainability principles:

  • To recruit artisans who use high-quality sustainably sourced or repurposed materials — to counteract throwaway culture
  • To actively recruit participating artisans from diverse backgrounds and to promote craft traditions that are at a greater risk of being lost
  • To package our products using recycled or compostable materials and to reuse packing materials when possible
  • To offset the carbon footprint of shipping products to our customers
  • To provide the opportunities to connect with artisans virtually — doing away with the time-and-resource-intensive craft fair model
  • To reduce waste in our day-to-day office operations, including hosting our website on Siteground, which has a 100% renewable energy match
