Spotlight: Candorra Artisans

Today Amanda from fair trade company, Candorra Artisans, will be sharing the brand story. Thanks to Candorra Artisans for sponsoring this post. 

At Candorra Artisans, we love people.


We also understand how our

daily decisions can have a life changing impact on others around the world.

Our passion is to unite women from all walks of life that understand the true

beauty behind the conscious decision to support fair employment and equal

opportunity. Every unique item Candorra carries is handmade by artisans that

now dream of a brighter future and a new found hope.

Our goal is to create limited and unique handmade artisan goods by

using elements of nature, bright colors, and lush textures that are high quality

and versatile. Our handmade artisan gifts, jewelry, accessories, and baby

clothes are inspired by traveling the world and creating treasures that

cultivate the interest, emotions, and memories of the people we meet along

the way.

We as a company strive to know our artisans personally and

understand them as individuals.



The vast majority of the artisans we support

are at-risk mothers. One of the aspects that makes Candorra special, is that we

help bind together a community of small social impact businesses in India, Sri

Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, and South Africa. Starting a business is difficult for

anyone to do, but almost impossible with little to no education. We support

these businesses directly by providing encouragement, mentorship, quality

control, and on-trend designs. Most importantly, we give these artisans

opportunities to sell through the US market, something that they could not

gain access too on their own.

We find our artisan groups through a network of families whose passion

is to bring hope and opportunity to those impacted by poverty through

business. These families travel overseas to start small businesses, employing

the locals, and teaching them business skills. We pay up front for every

product purchased, and take care to make sure our artisans are paid at or

above a living wage for their location. This model provides greater long term

success for the artisans, and grows a sustainable business model for all

involved.

There are situations where intervention is needed for social injustice or

poverty, such as after a natural disaster or war, but long term care is about

providing opportunity. At-risk men and women need the confidence and

purpose that comes from starting their own co-op or business where they can

build a future free of charity. At Candorra, our passion is using business as a

tool for transformation and freedom. We love joining hands with people who

support socially responsible companies and ethical fashion. 

We all have a part to play in this movement towards social justice.

Fortunately, by simply

choosing to purchase artisan made products through Candorra Artisans, you

greatly contribute to transforming, loving, and respecting women around the

world!
