We are Discovered, an online marketplace for handmade products ethically crafted by artisans in emerging countries. Our mission is to connect artisan entrepreneurs in India, Kenya, Thailand, Indonesia, South America, Mexico, Malaysia and Israel to conscious consumers worldwide. By stocking directly from the makers, every purchase creates a positive impact.

At Discovered, we are a small team with a selection of 75 artisans from all over the world. We have met our makers through our travels and realized they struggle to make ends meet.
