The Little Market is a non-profit trade shop that does so much for the world. They support so many amazing causes such as human trafficking, domestic violence, homelessness, HIV/aids and young mothers just to name a few. The Little Market was created by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla after they visited Tanzania and Uganda in 2012. While on that trip they met with organizations that were working with artisans and entrepreneurs. These amazing people were making such one of kind, beautiful pieces...BUT they didn't have the right platform to get their work more out there in the world - after this trip that completely changed.
As a non-profit company The Little Market has already impacted the world immensely - so far $73,982 has been raised with the numbers increasing by the minute! Below I've listed 4 Reasons The Little Market products should be essential to your everyday life.
1) THE COMPANY COLLABORATES WITH LIFE CHANGING CAUSES.
The Little Market collaborates with causes like Charlize Theron’s Africa Outreach Program in which you’re selling candles that have been hand-poured by United States women refugees, as well as reusable bags that are hand-sewn by women who live in Bangladeshi! I love that 50% of each purchase is donated to this program.
2) THE COMPANY HELPS ARTISANS AND ENTREPRENEURS HAVE A PLATFORM THEY WOULDN'T HAVE HAD BEFORE.
The Little Market is currently sourced by 75 artisan groups in over 25 countries and sovereign states. The artisans that create for this company did not have the available platform that they have today because of their location. Check out and learn more about The Little Market's artisan partners here!
3) WITH EVERY ITEM YOU BUY YOU LEARN ABOUT THE ARTISAN THAT CREATED IT.
I love that with every item you purchase there are summaries underneath about who’s creating it, where they’re from, and information about fair trade products! To me that is honestly such an awesome feature. I really find the pure enjoyment and soul gratifying experience in knowing where these products are from and who created them!
4) ALL THE PIECES ARE HAND MADE AND ONE OF A KIND.
The picture I posted above was of an item I just purchased from The Little Market and I'm absolutely obsessed with it! It's a reusable bag that celebrates Mother Nature all year-round! Each bag is created by artisan women using sustainable jute fabric from Bangladesh, and each purchase empowers female artisans at CORR. The bag comes in various designs which you can check out here!
