Gorgeous pillows, hand carved wooden bowls and other home décor items are what you can find on Artisan Connect, a marketplace for fairly sourced traditionally handcrafted products from developing countries around the world. Working only with artists who are part of nonprofits or artisan collectives, the unique and handmade goods from India, Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America that are featured on Artisan Connect represent more than just beautiful objects. Artisans are celebrated for their continuance of ancient and traditional craftsmanship, which due to globalization and lack of interest from the younger generation, are on the decline.
Founder 
Amanda North switched her professional trajectory after surviving the Boston Marathon bombings, creating Artisan Connect, a venture that melds North's love for travel and, passion for local and faith in her social mission.
