Hello ☺︎ we are Discovered
We are an ethical online store for handmade goods made by artisans from emerging countries. Our mission is to connect them to the global market. We are working closely with the artisans to make them successful in growing their business.
Our team consists of people from all over the world, from Argentina to India. Throughout our lives, we all have met artisans selling the most beautifully handmade items. At the same time, we have seen 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, industrially produced products.
On Discovered, we have handpicked a selection of great artisans. We help them reach out to an global audience by presenting their craftsmanship the way they deserve and provide quality service to our customers. We ensure that the prices the artisans receive provide them with a healthy profit, so they and their families can live a dignified life, at the same time ensuring that their crafts are not lost 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 😊).
