What we do
3rdworldcreative.com is a Swiss based fair trade e-commerce platform that specializes in the sourcing and sale of creative aesthetics from 3rd and developing economies. We connect talented third/developing-world artists, designers, craftsmen and creatives to markets which they would otherwise never have access to. Our primary goal is exposing the plethora of hidden talent concealed by national, geographic and socio-economic boundaries, and provide you, our valued customers, a chance to own some of their exquisite work.
Along with this objective we strive to dismantle entrenched hegemonic views associated with quality standards and the 3rd world, severing the heuristic connection between cost and quality and scaling production and access to creativity towards a globalized human-centric economy.
What does Fairtrade mean for us?
We keep it simple. We pride ourselves on driving an ethically sustainable business model which rewards all members of the value chain fairly. Without our Artists we would not exist. Therefore, we ensure that they always receive the lion's share. We do this to ensure that they can keep bringing their beautiful representations of our world to our world.
We believe that what the post-Covid world needs is more creativity and not less.
