Our values

  • We believe in global oneness and that everyone of us can make a difference. Our projects are conceived to be all-profit, meaning that they deliver sound and healthy profit to all parties involved and are designed for a greater good. While the financial sustainability and business impact of our propositions are key, the positive effects they have on the communities of artisans are huge – all the more when they are conceived with a mid- to long-term perspective.
    So that your project with us will make sense in every way.

    The objects and limited editions we design together have a soul, they are 100% handmade, sustainable by nature and fairly traded. They are of exceptional quality and made to last for many years, sometimes for generations.

Areas you will impact

We provide our clients with data on the positive impact they made for their ESG reporting.

With about 300 million handworkers worldwide, this sector is the second largest employer after agriculture. What challenges does it face that we can impact? 

  1. Literacy is a common challenge mong handworkers. 
    Almost half (48 %) of handworkers interviewed by Nest cannot read or write.
  2. Handworkers tend to have poor financial safety structures on place. Less than half of handworkers interviewed have a bank account.
  3. Working from home has positive implications for woman handworkers by helping women meet demands of child care and goals for child education while imparting greater personal agency to women who craft.
  4. 92 % of women homeworkers agree that their income from handwork enabled their children to complete high school. They agree that their decision-making ability, a strong measure of empowerment, has improved since they started working as a handworker. 
  5. 40 % of women handworkers interviewed reported that they primarily spend their income from this work to their children´s education.
