      On Village Artisan

      Village Artisan began 20 years ago with the hope to provide safe, dignifying, and fair work to a community in deep need. Since then, their artisan community has grown to nearly 100 makers, some of them mothers who are able to craft their pieces from home. This opportunity allows their employees to go from dependence on aid to a self-sustaining livelihood, creating a ripple effect on their own community. The money earned from Village Artisan often goes toward life-sustaining necessities like water pumps, medical care, improved hygiene, and infrastructure.

      The company provides skills training to men and women with few opportunities and education for children through their school sponsorship program. All materials are 100% eco-friendly and made from a range of natural and recycled materials.


      As a nonprofit artisan marketplace committed to social and environmental transparency, Joffa bridges the gap between maker and buyer and prioritizes the person behind every product. Our mission is to make it easier to do what you’re already doing — making socially conscious shopping decisions while finding quality items you actually want to buy.
