At One World Projects, our mission is to create viable economic alternatives for artisans and their families, and to expand the reaches of ethical and fair trade to include compassionate trade™`, which addresses the most pressing issues that face mankind today. Our focus is, and always has been, firmly on the welfare of our artisans.
We accomplish these goals by importing jewelry, clothing, handbags, house wares, fashion accessories, toys and other gifts from artisans in 25 developing countries across Latin America, Asia and Africa, and then by redistributing those crafts to wholesale buyers and retail consumers across the United States. All of our items are handmade using sustainable methods and materials and fair trade imported, which means artisans are paid a fair and living wage for their work. Since 1992, our network has grown to include more than 11,000 artisans from different parts of the world. – less
