Meet the Makers

There are over 700 incredible artisans that bring our jewelry and accessories to life! All of our styles are handmade by our artisan partners in India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bali. Some are part of women's cooperatives or family groups, and others are members of the World Fair Trade Organization. Each WorldFinds style provides dignified work, fair wages, a safe workplace, and hope for the future through fair trade. Learn more below about the makers that handcrafted your WorldFinds accessories.

These talented women all handcraft your vibrant Kantha jewelry using repurposed Sari & Kantha textiles wrapped around a wooden bead base. Through our fair trade partnership, our artisan partners have gained financial freedom, personal independence and stability. Through their hard work, they have been able to send their children off to school, provide better nourishment for their families and even purchase homes.

These are some of the women artisans that handcraft your metallic jewelry! Our artisan partners are based out of New Delhi, India and work with other smaller groups to craft the charms, medallions, and other metal pieces for your jewelry. The group's workforce includes individuals from marginalized communities including refugees, women, people with disabilities, and survivors of domestic violence.

All of ourย Kutch bags & small goods are handcrafted by a small group of family artisans outside of Delhi. These artisans hand-select and pair together all of the repurposed Kutch textiles that are used in the accessories, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind.

These are some of the women artisans that handcraft the vibrant Woven Sari Pouches! The artisansโ€™ creation process is amazing! Women collect sariโ€™s and other leftover material like silk and jacquard thatโ€™s been discarded from local factories. Then they wash, dry and cut the fabrics so they can be woven on a traditional loom thatโ€™s over 100 years old, and doesnโ€™t require any electricity. The woven pieces are sewn into accessories that are colorful and textured, with a different, complementary look that fits nicely with our current repurposed textile styles.
