the little market was started by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla to empower women artisans all around the world.

we currently have about 50 different groups we work with in countries like Madagascar, Guatemala, Mexico, and the States!

everything is fair trade, meaning our team ensures each group we work with pays artisans a fair wage, has proper working conditions, strives to be eco-friendly, protects the rights of children, respects the culture of artisans, and more. i particularly love that fair trade helps preserve the beautiful techniques and traditions that make our products so unique!

for giving tuesday, we’re partnering with some of our favorite brands for a giveaway! enter to win here
