Ten Thousand Villages has been a tried and true supplier of HumanKind; their products bring so much life into the store! We especially love their Kantha Flower Garlands, which are made from beautifully patterned recycled sari material, perfect for adding a touch of color to any room. We’re proud to carry products from Ten Thousand Villages not only because they are a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization and a verified member of the Fair Trade Federation, but because they have a powerful vision: a world where every person can take care of their basic needs, save for the future, and invest in their community.
By paying fair wages and connecting makers to the right market, Ten Thousand Villages is working to make that vision a reality. And their impact is impressive: they have partnerships in over 25 countries and with over 20,000 makers, sixty percent of whom are women. Ten Thousand Villages has a triple bottom line that prioritizes economic, environmental and social sustainability and they are dedicated to addressing the economic injustices that affect their partners.
