There’s A Story Here
WorldFinds products are handmade in small batches by our artisan partners across the globe. Our partnerships provide a living wage and safe working conditions for our artisans, while providing economic empowerment through fair trade.
From India to Nepal to Bangladesh, we work collaboratively with more than 700 talented women (and a few men) to co-create our designs. Our artisans aren’t just makers, they’re partners in sustainable innovation. Take our original Kantha jewelry, for example:
Our artisan partners in India were looking for ways to repurpose fabric scraps left over from our bags and accessories, which they had created using traditional Kantha quilts. They had the idea to approach a local furniture factory to collect wood scraps to carve into beads, which they then covered with Kantha fabric. This innovation provided the spark for our U.S.-based team to expand an initial necklace design into a full Kantha jewelry collection, and for WorldFinds to become known for our original Kantha jewelry.
To this day, our collections are designed in the Chicago area, and brought to life by our talented artisan partners. From our Kantha jewelry to our one-of-a-kind Kutch accessories, there’s a story behind every piece we create, and the foundation for a bright future through fair trade.
