Who are we?
We are art enthusiasts who share a background at Amazon.com. Our vision is to maintain an online marketplace that balances profits with fair trade practices while introducing under-appreciated art forms to Western audiences.
Equal Craft: A fair-trade marketplace for artisan design
Committed to individual artists, Equal Craft introduces local arts to a global marketplace, preserving traditional forms in contemporary designs, while maintaining fair trade practices. We offer our customers not only one-of-a-kind designer goods from around the world, but also a way to connect with the artists and the products they create.
Fair Trade, as we see it
Fair Trade means higher wages and an increased standard of living for those who live below the poverty line. Fair Trade, to us, also means facilitating relationships between artisans and those who support artists so that both sides may benefit through educating each other and improving the process of the marketplace.
Communication is key
We work directly with local partner organizations to ensure that artisans are treated equitably and with respect. Customers can communicate directly with us and our local partners with any questions about our process, or with suggestions on how to improve the lives of our artisans. Furthermore, customers and artisans alike can communicate with each other through EqualCraft.com. We want to hear your ideas and your experiences - your feedback is crucial, so don't hesitate to contact us.
