Artisan & Fox empowers artisans in developing regions by connecting them to mindful consumers worldwide.
What do we do?
Artisan & Fox works alongside artisan entrepreneurs every day to help artisans expand their micro-enterprises.
We do this by improving their products' quality, capacity of production, and co-creating contemporary designs to sustainably increase the incomes and quality of life of our partner artisans.
Artisan craftsmanship remains the second largest employer in developing countries.
It is one of the main sources of income for both men and women makers striving for a sustainable livelihood. However, these artisans are also some of the most marginalized, lacking access to the global market and often exploited by unscrupulous middlemen.
We collaborate with independent artisans, small artisan groups, non-profits and local social enterprises to support craftsmen and craftswomen.
We do this with a dual focus on sustainability and transparency, ensuring the ethics of each and every piece on our online marketplace. Discover where your piece is made here.
We encourage adapting long-standing local artisanal practices to use locally-sourced materials with a low ecological and carbon footprint.
Some of the products in the marketplace include animal-based materials such as by-product leather and upcycled bone. We only support reclaimed materials that would have otherwise been discarded or unused. Learn more about our sustainability focus here.
Artisan & Fox redefines the modern fashion supply chain, by giving the artisans the upper-hand in the entire product design process.
Each piece on our marketplace is inspired by the cultural landscapes of the regions in which we work in. With a fusion of contemporary style and traditional techniques, we ensure that traditional craftsmanship is preserved while also remaining relevant in today's world.
