Aid to Artisans

I recently came across an international non-profit organization called Aid to Artisans, and I thought all of you handmade/art lovers would appreciate it. This organization works with artisans from all over the world, helping them build their businesses and giving them access to new global markets.


Being an artist myself, and trying to make a go of it from mainstream U.S. is hard enough, so it seems near impossible to understand how artisans in more remote locations could even have a chance at getting themselves out there into the global market.

I love that this organization is helping that cause, and therefore helping us creative types fulfill what we were put here to do: make things. Their website gives all the nitty-gritty, including info if you would like to buy wholesale or import directly, but they also have an online shop so we can all buy directly. If you’re in the straight-up giving mood, you can also donate cold hard cash straight to Aid to Artisans.

Yay for artisans all over the world!

Some Thoughts

and then be ready for what will
come pouring from the spring."
