Selling through Discovered creates more income for artisans. They can set the price they want to receive for the products themselves. By cutting out all middlemen, artisans receive at least 20% more for their products. This is what we call fairer trade.
Discovered is dedicated to creating positive impact. Not all artisans work alone. Sometimes they work in groups or collectives, are helped by not for profit organizations or work for social businesses. We select our partners to ensure more artisans have work make at least 10% above average wage.
We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.
We love handmade. We also feel strongly about preserving the world we live in. That’s why we work with our partners & artisans to stimulate using local materials and natural resources, and paying special attention to packaging & shipping.

This kantha scarf is made of a sari fabric with olive green and dark grey patterns on one side; on the other is a purple and red design. Each scarf is unique and the fabrics have been selected with care. Made by a woman who has worked approximately one day on This scarf. Size: 35 x 190 cm This sari kantha scarf is made from vintage saris. Three layers of sari fabric are stitched together with a running stitch. This type of Bengali embroidery is called kantha. The front and back of the scarf are made from different saris, selected to give a beautiful contrast. Vintage saris may have small imperfections, but every care is taken to patch them with a beautiful matching fabric. The scarves are made in Bangladesh by an organisation that creates fair work for women. These women are given the opportunity to provide for themselves and their families in a dignified and fair way. This means the chances of them becoming victims of trafficking (again) decreases greatly.
