We love handcrafted goods! But this is about much more than just products. Loving handcrafted means that means we’re committed to supporting artisans, sustaining communities, preserving traditional techniques, and sharing the stories behind our wares. So throughout the holiday season, we’ll be introducing you to artisan groups from our worldwide network of small-scale crafters.

Watch the video below to learn more about our philosophy, and visit our site to learn what we’re doing about it!

Spoiler alert: Through 2015, west elm has made a commitment to paying $35 million directly to artisans and hand-crafters in 15 countries. And that means we’re directly impacting the lives of 4,500 artisan workers and 18,000 family members.
