Our Artisan Partners

Small World Goods works primarily with women artisans along the Silk Road. When you shop Small World Goods, you are supporting the financial independence of these artists who struggle to expand their network.
In many of these countries, women have limited means to participate in society. By supporting Small World Goods, you are not only supporting the artisans we work with, but normalizing the image of female independence for other women in their communities!
