At Missions Market, we seek to empower women artisans to rise above poverty in developing countries. We desire for them to gain skills and be able to manage funds for their families education and healthcare. By working with not-for-profit community based organizations on the ground, and keeping an eye on the western market, we have developed an approach that honours both artisans and buyers. We aim to source our products directly from from artisans and craftspeople within developing countries. While we focus on new concepts, marketing and the distribution of products, our charity partners support the artisans and are established to care for these woman and provide safe working environments. Our unique, handcrafted goods showcase our artisans’ traditional skills and materials. It takes hours of intricate techniques to turn beautiful natural fibers into finely woven rugs, home-wares and accessories. Using both traditional and modern designs, our artisans print, weave and sew every item by hand. Through outreach programs, we have created a network of skilled female artisans in remote, rural communities around the globe. Our goal is to empower as many people as possible out of the cycle of poverty.
