About Artisan & Fox:

Artisan & Fox is an ethical marketplace seeking to connect you to extraordinary craftsmanship sourced from across the Majority World. They empower artisans - silversmiths, weavers, and other makers alike - who are cut off from international markets; be it due to infrastructural barriers, political and societal unrest, or rural conditions.

They only collaborate with independent artisans, artisan cooperatives, and certified non-profits, and work to ensure that artisans receive 50% of the profits from your purchase. Their remaining profits are reinvested into their social programmes, such as zero-interest micro-credit (Thrive Transfers), and their pro-bono outreach with Syrian refugees (Threads of Syria).
