Welcome to I Thought of You, a woman-owned business committed to spreading joy and prosperity through socially conscious work.
Our mission is to expand the global marketplace of hardworking people in developing countries. We sell Fair Trade, handmade products that are not only beautiful, but also have beautiful stories behind them. Each piece purchased represents a building block for constructing a sustainable business that will provide income to people who need it most.
Be supportive. We provide our artisans with an environment for success, which includes access to the global marketplace and assistance in areas like product development and quality control. Our goal is to provide our artisans an opportunity to earn a sustainable income and improve their quality of life.
Be fair. To ensure that each artist is fairly compensated for their time, labor, and talent, we never mandate prices. Our partners are free to set their own prices and change them at will to help ensure a stable income. We’re committed to making our products in a way that is good for people and good for the environment while following fair trade practices.
Be thoughtful. Our handmade products make great gifts because of the thought and care put into creating everything in our shop. Everything created by our artisans uses natural, recycled, and/or upcycled materials. You’ll know that when you say yes to our fair trade, eco-friendly goods, you’re saying no to sweatshops, unfair wages, and child labor.
Our founder’s passion for travel and adventure has allowed her to meet people from all walks of life. Even as someone outside of their culture, she found them welcoming, gracious, and kind. Many also happened to be talented artisans and craftspeople that live in areas where their talents cannot be fully realized.
Our Fair Trade products are not only beautiful, but also have beautiful stories behind them. Thank you for supporting so many small businesses around the world and for creating positive, lasting change.
We may be small but our desire to make a difference drives us to achieve big things.
To date, I Thought of You has purchased over 60,000 pieces from craftspeople worldwide.
