Our Aims, Hopes and Endeavors
Our endeavor is about the real value and function of the products we use and the people who make these products; the story that is often hidden from the naked eye. Through our products we aim to connect the hearts and hands behind our collections with loving clients who appreciate the maker's process and cherish their products. We aim to contribute to a conscious buying culture that values the maker's survival challenges, their creativity, abilities, and innate passion as well as their need to appropriately sustain themselves, their families and communities (in the present and with a long term vision for the future).
The Maker World ensures producers and suppliers are compensated adequately for their products. Our hope is to confront the maker's financial fears by facilitating consistent sales, honoring and paying the maker's set prices, tackling poverty and hopelessness, and sharing prosperity with some of the most hardworking, under-compensated and least financially solvent peoples of the world:
The Artisan, The Skilled Maker, The Weaver, The Knitter, The Tool Maker, The Hand-Crafter
We are constantly seeking out and working with individuals and teams of product makers to create an amazing network and collection of products. Our handmade products will include, but are not limited to home goods, accessories, woven goods, handbags, tools, jewelry, etc.
We also reach out to like-minded, fair-trade organizations to learn from them. Our underlying purpose is the social and professional development of women, youth and all who form part of the making process. You're welcome to join our email list to receive progress updates, newsletters, or to simply contribute to our cause with thoughts, maker contacts/referrals or other contributions.
Thank you for your genuine support of shared prosperity and the advancement of sustainable living and working conditions.
