Far & Wide Collective

Far & Wide Collective is an online marketplace that partners with talented artisans in developing economies to give buyers in North America unique access to a large selection of high quality gifts, fashion accessories and home decor. The success of online marketplaces such as etsy.com, notonthehighstreet.com and many others confirms the fast growing consumer appetite for hand-made and unique items. Nevertheless most large online portals and retailers continue to exclude emerging markets due to logistical, transactional and product design challenges. Far and Wide Collective is busy building a business model that, through our portal, directly links artisans to consumers. By becoming a dominant player in this fast growing space we can bring thousands of producers into the global economy, support small business growth, in the places that most need it, and give consumers a unique experience.
