Global Goods Partners’ overriding aim is to build sustainable artisan enterprises in the Global South that allow our artisan partners to prosper and thrive well into the future. In addition to the revenue they earn from the products we sell online and through other retailers, we offer our partners small financial grants to purchase new equipment, upgrade their facilities or to improve the lives of the women artisans they work with and their families.
