Our Values

Our online marketplace is a one stop shop for sustainable, fair trade, charitable and artisanal products.


We love connecting people! Our goal is to introduce artisans from around the world to consumers on a fun, inspiring e commerce platform. There are no borders here! We want to empower people from all walks of life to live better and more beautifully. By purchasing from The Guild you can help tribal artisans, women and minority owned businesses thrive.


We want to make sure that we support these incredible artisans and small businesses to ensure diversity in our choices as consumers. We also want a safer, more sustainable world for future generations without sacrificing style or functionality. Our curators are always on the hunt for the most unique and interesting brands that align with our ethos.
