Ten Thousand Villages carries a selection of jewelry, home decor, textiles, plant and garden, coffee and chocolate with new items arriving every month. A fair trade retailer, Ten Thousand Villages provides vital, fair income to artisans in 38 countries around the world. Ten Thousand Villages doesn’t stop with just a fair price. Ten Thousand Villages works to create long-term working relationships with artisans. In a world where consumers bounce from one fad to the next, Ten Thousand Villages helps artisans adapt their traditional skills to create modern designs that appeal to North American consumers. In addition, Ten Thousand Villages provides cash advances and prompt final payments. Last, Ten Thousand Villages maintains environmental responsibility by encouraging staff and artisan partners to employ sustainable practices and to use recycled and natural materials when possible.
