Far & Wide Collective is an online marketplace that partners with talented artisans in developing economies to give buyers in developed economies access to a large selection of unique gifts, fashion accessories and home décor. We work with a large network of artisans in Afghanistan, India, Kenya, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Uzbekistan and are expanding to other countries. Our partner artisans focus on producing original products while we handle marketing, logistics, and distribution for them.
While most emerging market artisans continue to lack sustainable access to international markets, demand for hand-made and one-of-a-kind products has increased dramatically. Still, most large online portals and retail players continue to exclude emerging market artisans and producers – mostly due to logistical, product design and quality-related challenges.
