Ten Thousand Villages specializes in handmade gifts and crafts from international artisans. More than 60 years ago, Edna Ruth Byler began selling handcrafted products from Puerto Rico out of the trunk of her car in order to help eradicate poverty. Today it has grown to include a global network of social entrepreneurs work to empower artisans in developing countries. Everything is fair trade, meaning artisans are given a fair price and cash advances, they maintain a long-term relationship, they provide design collaboration, and they are environmentally responsibilities. Ten Thousand Villages sources gifts, jewelry, home décor, art and sculpture, textiles, serveware and personal accessories representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. The company is one of the world’s largest World Fair Trade Organization and improves the lives of people within 38 countries (including Bangladesh, Egypt, West bank, Indonesia, Laos, Mexico, Ecuador, Nigeria, Ghana, Peru, and more). Once the products are sold, they help pay for food, education, healthcare, and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed. Look for jewelry, such as necklaces handmade in Kenya, earrings made in Peru, pins from Indonesia; scarves made in Laos, India, and handbags from Vietnam; bowls and serving ware from Indonesia; roasters from Bangladesh, chopsticks from Vietnam; wall hangings from Vietnam, wall art from Haiti, and Nepal and the Philippines; and home accents from everywhere—ornaments from Egypt, a book box from India, and lamps from Bangladesh.
