HOW DOES IT WORK?

Zeal Living searches the African continent to find beautiful product that is made by groups of artisans that meet our fair trade practice standards.

We purchase directly from those artisan groups, paying artisan-set prices that provide a living wage. We bring their work to the world, increasing market demand.

The cycle of poverty is broken as artisans earn steady incomes. Their work is dignified, honors indigenous techniques, and is made in safe working environments.

EMPOWERING ARTISANS

THROUGH SUSTAINABLE JOB CREATION  

OUR VALUES

FAIR TRADE ETHICS

We only work with artisan groups who embody the principles laid out by the Fair Trade Federation, whether or not the group has gone through the costly and time-consuming formal certification process.

HUMANITARIAN HEART

Our artisan groups are committed seeing their communities thrive. Artisans receive a wide array of additional services and support - from clean water access to no-cost business training to interest-free loans.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSCIOUSNESS

Our artisan groups use locally available, sustainable, and recycled materials in production whenever possible. Environmental stewardship is a crucial part of creating conscious goods, and it is a step we pay close attention to.

It is critical that the lives of the makers, and the lives of those in their communities, are positively affected by the creation of your Zeal Living goods. After meeting the people behind our brands and hearing their stories, I could not be more proud to introduce you to them and the incredible items they make.
