At Candorra Artisans, we love people.
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.
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!
