Threads Worldwide is an ultra-supportive and focused fair trade business that seeks to internationally empower women through craftsmanship and handmade products. The initiative was launched by three women who are avid advocates of fairness, equality and adequate labor compensation. Threads Worldwide partners with local artisans from around the world—from Kenya to Ecuador—in the hopes of providing individuals with a marketplace to sell their handmade products and reap the benefits of it. The company has partnered with artisans from more than 15 countries, giving them the opportunity for "dignified work in a nourishing environment."
As Threads Worldwide is a fair trade business, the company actively promotes healthy working conditions, a sustainable work environment for both individuals and the planet, as well as fair and equal wages.
