WorldFinds mission is to empower women through fair trade. WorldFinds jewelry and accessories create work for over 700 artisans in vulnerable communities in India. These thoughtful designs and sustainable practices bring change to the lives of the artisans, provide a bright future for their children, and strengthen their communities.
There are over 700 incredible artisans that bring their jewelry and accessories designs to life! All of WorldFinds' styles are handmade by women artisans in India and Bali. Some are part of women's cooperatives or family groups, and others are members of the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization). All are finding a path out of poverty through fair trade.
WorldFinds' styles create lasting change in artisan communities. Each piece provides dignified work, fair wages, a safe workplace, and hope for the future. We love that the single act of making a piece of jewelry or sewing a bag can help transform women's lives. The dignified, sustainable work is empowering, and creates a chain of goodness. Seeing this impact inspires us every day!
