Hello! Welcome to Discovered ☺︎
We are an online store for handcrafted products, ethically made by artisans in emerging countries. Our mission is to connect artisan entrepreneurs in India, Kenya, Thailand, Indonesia, South America and Israel to conscious consumers across the world. By stocking directly from the makers, every purchase creates a positive impact.
We are a global team from all over the world, from West to East. On our travels, we have met artisans selling beautiful handicrafts we want to preserve. At the same time, these artisans struggle to make ends meet. Only depending on the local market, it is difficult for them to sell against a reasonable price, particularly since markets have been flooded with low quality and industrially produced products.
On Discovered, we have handpicked a selection of great artisans. We help them reach out to a global audience by presenting their work the way they deserve and provide quality service to our customers. We ensure that the prices our artisans receive provide them with a healthy profit, their families can live a dignified life, keeping crafts alive for future generations. The more we grow, the more artisans increase their earnings through the platform.
Recognising a major gap in the market for artisans at accessible prices, Discovered launched in November 2015 as a destination for curated products that celebrate ethical handcrafts.
We believe in business as a force for positive impact as the most sustainable way to reach a better standard of living while also preserving original crafts.
Join us in our mission, one purchase at a time (or two). Visit our blog to meet the artisans.
