ARTISAN MADE | FAIR TRADE
We believe that when you invest in a woman, an entire community reaps the benefits. Why? Because she invests right back into her children and those around her. Fair+Simple focuses on woman-made products with artful, simple design.
A portion of our profits goes to The Made by Women Fund which supports women artisans and makers around the world through skill development, proper equipment, and education so their business can flourish.
