Third World Craft(Artisan Market Nepal) was established in 1999 by a group of youth who have 2 decades of experience in fair trade and international export . It is currently creating jobs for home based women artisan who can not go out to work due to family responsibilities and other cultural barriers. Our business model is simple, we provide needed raw material and training to home based women and they make into finish products and deliver back to us.They are paid immediately with appropriate fair wages and yearly bonus. In each location we have group leader who manage raw materials collection , distribution and delivery back so in turn she gets little more wages/commission for doing this work.
Our long term goal is to make the women producers to independent entrepreneurs by empowering them with necessary skills on production, management and marketing.
We currently have about 300 women scattered in three city producing jewelries , besides our own production center/network we also sell large collection of other crafts produced by such women artists around Nepal. Some products like nettle , hemp based artifacts are produced in very remote hilly areas of Nepal. So their production some time limited or delivery take longer time.
We have been exporting to North America, Mexico, Brazil, Europe, Australia, Japan and Singapore and some to south asian countries. We have over 2000 satisfied wholesalers and over 3000 individual customers . Retailers may send any size order and we deliver up to your door within 4 to 7 days. For order below 800 $ there will not be any importing duties in USA. European buyers may use form A to exempt from tax.
We do accept payment via credit card and paypal. For larger order we suggest to pay by bank wire.
We do export in the name of Artisan Market Nepal as official exporting company.
