We strive for transparency and stand up for fair production.
Working through cooperatives and social enterprises, our partners improve the quality of life in their communities in a number of ways, including literacy workshops, business training, and health programs. Women artisans are often able to work from home while caring for their families, and they can use the extra income to send their children to school. Oftentimes these children will be the first generation to graduate high school.
By buying from our online store, you help us to support long-term and sustainable economies in developing countries. Financial independence empowers women. Artisans earn liveable salary with what they can provide food and housing, education and healthcare not just for themselves, but for their whole family.
What we really want is a bit better world. We can just contribute by small actions. Who would not want to do that?
Mahri Mahri was founded by an Estonian Maria with the big help and support of her Swedish Ted. Their children Finn (3y) and Milo (1y) run the show tho.
The rest just followed from there.
