About Us

WorldFinds mission is to empower women through fair trade. Our jewelry and accessories create work for over 700 artisans in vulnerable communities in India. These thoughtful designs and sustainable practices bring change to the lives of the artisans, provide a bright future for their children, and strengthen their communities. We’re a { mostly } women-powered brand that began in 2001. We design all of our items in-house, and love to work collaboratively - both here at our office in the states as well as with our amazing artisans halfway around the world. You can find us in over 900 stores in the US, and a growing number around the world.

Your purchases make a huge impact!

Your purchase creates and extends a chain of goodness around the world. Each bracelet, necklace, and earring made gives a woman artisan a job, a source of income and a means of preserving traditional crafts and art forms. This, in turn, provides education and food for the woman's family and community.


Made By Hand

All of our products are handmade with love, providing a living wage, safe working conditions to our artisans, as well as the preservation of the techniques and culture behind Kantha.


Eco-Friendly

All of our Kantha products are handcrafted from wooden scraps from furniture factories and repurposed Sari and Kantha textiles. This reduces waste while improving lives for our artisans.


Empowers Women

WorldFinds is not only woman-owned, but woman-powered. We are committed to empowering women and their communities through fair trade.


Supports Education

Through your support, WorldFinds is able to support women and girls in their pursuit of education. Last year alone, an increase in orders allowed our artisan groups to send three times as many girls to school.


Personal Independence

Through Fair Trade, our women artisans are able to develop independence. Artisans have gone on to purchase homes, send their children to school, and even launch their own businesses!


Path out of Poverty

Your purchase helps women pave a path out of poverty through fair trade. Through the collectives, our artisans are paid a living wage and are able to contribute to their family.

Meet the Makers

There are over 700 incredible artisans that bring our jewelry and accessories to life! All of our styles are handmade by women artisans in India and Bali. Some are part of women's cooperatives or family groups, and others are members of the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization). All are finding a path out of poverty through fair trade. Each piece provides dignified work, fair wages, a safe workplace, and hope for the future.

Our Story

WorldFinds was conceptualized in the middle of a 14-month backpack trip around the world, way back in 1999. Founder Kelly Weinberger and her husband David Burns had taken a sabbatical and traveled throughout various parts of Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and finally Asia, where they spent time in India and Nepal and Kelly first learned about fair trade – and had her lightbulb moment. She dreamed of creating a business that existed to do good, that was based on partnership, collaboration, great design, kindness and respect for humans and the environment. A business that would address the root cause of poverty – a lack of work.The combination of dreaming, doing and persistence has resulted in who we are today, and all that you see here!
