We are admirers of the work of Chilean artisans. We share their vision and culture. We know that their work is the encounter point for ethnic groups, cultures and places. In their hands wisdom and identity is expressed; traditional and ancestral professions are preserved.We are admirers of the work of Chilean artisans. We share their vision and culture.

Since 1988 our mission has been to look for new markets for the high quality Chilean arts and crafts. We do it in Chile and in foreign countries, with the purpose of improving the artisan’s life quality.
We have been pioneers in social innovation: we were the very first Fair Trade company in the country, certified by the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). We assume the commitment of becoming an accessible path for the artisans. We generate the tools to enter new markets and optimize the prices for their products. What motivates us is to dignify and value the work of thousands of artisans.
In all these years we have been guided by a common inspiration, a clear purpose and path of action and thought. A sensitive spirit, willing to look and recognize the moment to support anyone who doesn’t have the same opportunities. The strength to act decidedly and achieve, in an effect and innovative way, the best working conditions. The vigor to generate respectable and well paid job.
Nowadays we are also a B Corp, that ratifies our social commitment and the implementation of work practices and attitudes that focus towards the people and producers who are least favored or further from the conventional market and work circuits.
