Interior design and furniture stores find most success with our large wall décor assortments, often buying 3 sizes to display on the wall in 2-3 different color assortments.
Our zoos and gift boutique stores find a few large wall statement pieces are helpful to grab attention, and coasters, trivets, and small baskets are great giftable items and souvenirs that sell through at a high volume all year—and ornaments during the holidays.
Garden stores build assortments of sizes in planters, typically at least 4 styles of our standard cylinder vase with a glass insert and a few giftable accent pieces like small bowls and coasters.
High-end specialty stores find success in a range of statement pieces such as our contemporary wall art, floor urns, woven side tables, and giftables.
First, you can rest assured of our genuine impact. Our Neal Seal of Compliance for Homeworkers gives you the confidence you can share with your customers and the public that our artisans are fairly paid, treated well, and there are no children in the workforce—this is fair trade at its best. You can read more about the seal here.
Second, you’ll see it in our quality, delivery, and satisfaction guarantee. We guarantee our quality and color (and that’s unmatched in the artisan space). We pantone color-match each dye batch and have a 3-step quality control process to ensure the right color and quality for every piece, every order, or you can return your products.
Third, there are many woven basket options out there. We’re not afraid to say it...we know it’s a crowded marketplace. However, we continue to push the product development limits to create uniquely new and exceptional offerings that keep our customers coming back for more. They trust the quality, our commitment to delivery, and our integrity in the developing world for making an impact—and we know you will soon, too.
Yes! We do wholesale fair trade bolga baskets from Ghana. Our artisans in Ghana use a unique technique and material sourced from elephant grass that has coined the term “Bolga” from the region of Bolgatanga, Ghana that they originate from.
In addition to baskets from Bolga, we also wholesale Rwanda peace baskets, Rwanda sisal baskets, Uganda raffia baskets, banana leaf baskets and many more!
We aren’t just a wholesaler marketplace for retailers to find unique artisan items, we’re also a custom development partner! Our expertise lies in working directly with the artisans and our talented design team to innovate and bring new, fresh contemporary products to market.
Have an idea of a product of your own? Would you like to develop a new item to wholesale and sell via your own brand? We’re here for you. With no product development fees based on future orders, we can take the heavy lifting out of making your product come to life in a matter of weeks!

Faire is a great new marketplace offering a variety of merchandise for retailers and wholesale items in their online store such as indie jewelry, Wander Jewelry, the Bee & the Fox, and Toy Brain.
Faire has a transaction percentage and—most disappointing of all—you won’t be able to see what we actually have in stock and can ship. For example, our online store shows if we have 36 chargers, however, Faire will only show the item and not inform you until we ship what has actually sent. We have little control over this process.
Faire is a great place to look for new vendors, but if you like control over the quantities you’re
getting and making sure your assortment looks great together, it’s best to order from our site
