Global Artisans

Sharing Their Story

We are committed to partnering with cooperatives and artisans in developing countries to provide a market for their creations. Our suppliers pay a fair wage and/or allow the artisans to set the price for their products so that they can make a sustainable living and emerge from poverty.

Throughout the years, The Mustard Seed has seen the real impact of our small store.  It is our hope that by providing a market for beautiful gifts, sharing the Fair Trade story, and donating our profits, we can continue to help change the lives of women and children.

 

 

From Peru and Guatemala, to Kenya and Vietnam, The Mustard Seed partners with cooperatives and artisans in developing countries to provide a market for their creations and pay a fair wage… helping make a REAL difference in the lives of women and children.
