There is nothing I love more than a giving heart.
And today’s link to love is all about that. Let me introduce you to The Little Market.
Founded by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla, The Little Market is an online marketplace where customers can purchase beautiful products handmade by artisans around the world. They provide design insights, helping their partners to showcase their traditional skills and cultural techniques to a broader audience. They practice fair trade principles, and every purchase from The Little Market
Working through cooperatives and social enterprises, their artisan partners improve the quality of life in their communities in a number of ways, including literacy workshops, business training, and health programs. Women artisans are often able to work from home while caring for their families, and they can use the extra income to send their children to school.
Their mission is to build sustainable partnerships with artisans from around the world, by connecting them with customers through an online marketplace. They seek to empower women artisans to rise above poverty and support their families.
Their handmade goods showcase the artisans’ traditional skills and their dedication to preserving their artisanal techniques. They source all of the artisans’ products ethically and practice fair trade principles.
