Small World Goods only works with makers from historically marginalized communities. We're trying to provide opportunities to amazing people who haven't gotten them in the past!
In many countries, women have limited means to participate in their society. By supporting Small World Goods, you're not only supporting these artisans, but working to normalize the image of female independence for other women in their communities!
Some of our incredible partners:
