Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. We're a global maker-to-market movement. Creating opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn a fair income, we bring their products and stories to our markets through long term fair trading relationships.
Find handcrafted jewelry, scarves, handbags, tableware, textiles, baskets, and art all ethically sourced. From communities throughout the developing world, every inspired design is crafted by hand. Every purchase improves the lives of makers by supporting their craft and providing a fair, stable income.
As the world’s fair trade pioneer since 1946, we do business differently. We are committed to eco-friendly practices, microfinancing, fair pricing, skill building and empowering marginalized communities to break the cycle of poverty. Today 20,000 makers in 30 countries are safely employed, earning consistent wages that allow them to provide for basic needs, send their children to school, build savings and plan for the future.
At Ten Thousand Villages in Portsmouth, you can be part of this story. Together we change lives around the world. Come explore and connect with your global village.
