ArtisanAndFox_Transparency (1 of 1).jpg

We believe in fashion as a force for good.

We connect artisan talents from emerging markets to the international fashion scene, transforming the way we consume and think of the things we wear.

ArtisanAndFox_About_OurModel (1 of 8).jpg


We are radically transparent about each and every artisan that we work alongside.

We believe you have the right to know who, where and how your piece was made. No exceptions.

In the list below, we list our partners and communities of operations.  

*For pricing transparency, we aim to have full cost breakdowns of each item on the marketplace published by Q2 2018.


We focus our energy on building strong relationships with each artisan partner, and we stay selective in the process of working with individuals who are open to being equally as transparent as we are.

We invite you to be curious, ask questions and challenge us. Because we believe that fashion won’t change the world, but those who wear it will.

Threads Of Syria is a special not-for-profit initiative, where 100% of all profits are reinvested back into the camp and provided to the Syrian women refugees who craft each Syrian Scarf. All images, photography and other branding/marketing collateral will also automatically vest into the Syrian women's co-operative once they have the legal right to do so. At present Artisan & Fox is covering all operation costs, marketing costs, material costs, wages, and other financial risk for the women until the project has reached a commercially stable stage.
