Ten Thousand Villages Orlando
To many, fair trade is just an economic term. Our definition, however, runs far deeper. At Ten Thousand Villages, fair trade is a partnership based on dialogue, mutual understanding, respect and direct contact between ourselves and our artisan partners in developing countries. Working with unemployed or underemployed artisans, we help them bring their crafts and cultures to North America, and to support themselves and their families.
Ten Thousand Villages operates as a business with a compassionate mission by maintaining integrity in our actions and relationships. We market quality products from diverse cultures around the world made by people that we know and care enough about to do business with in a manner that together we consider fair.
