It joins Ten Thousand Villages fair trade stores in Media, Bryn Mawr and Center City.
The company focuses on sourcing its curated selection of products from artisans around the globe.
“We create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn an income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long term fair trade relationships,” explains CEO Gordon Zook.
Ten Thousand Villages works with artisans in about 30 countries to “bring products that they create, many of which are traditional to their particular areas,” with the goal of also sharing the stories behind the materials, tools and traditions of those creations.
The nonprofit is focused on long-term relationship building to create sustainable income for its artisans.
The new location will be similar to the Bryn Mawr store concept. It makes use of re-purposed fixtures from Lancaster County and other artisans from around the globe.
It also gives shoppers the opportunity to interact with products and learn more about their stories.
