Ten Thousand Villages

Fair Trade from International Artisans

Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. Their mission is to create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to their markets through long-term, fair trading relationships. As a pioneer of fair trade, they put people and planet first. That means you can trust that every handmade purchase and donation you make directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country.

More About Us

“Ten Thousand Villages is a refreshing respite in today’s world of retail where authenticity, meaning, and mission are in short supply. It truly puts people and planet first. Its goal is nothing less than to change the world by helping people help themselves.”



“From amethyst earrings made in Peru to a Phoenician blue decanter made in West Bank or a salt crystal glow lamp from Pakistan, they have a little something special for everyone. The store is thoughtfully curated with wares that are handcrafted and ethically-sourced, so you feel great knowing that something good is coming out of your purchase. It's a win-win!”


USA Today

“Ten Thousand Villages is...full of lovely gifts that are both beautiful and meaningful to more than just the recipient. The site works hard to ensure that artisans earn living wages and that some of the profits benefit charities that grow communities. From beautiful silk scarves and handmade jewelry to cute kitchen towels and home décor items like candle holders, Ten Thousand Villages has a big selection of gifts.”
