Our Mission

Artisans Guatemala

 

Home

Whether it's a place to escape the outside world or a nest for your loved ones, we believe in the importance of home. By supplying ethically sourced items and promoting sustainable living we focus on making it easy for you to decorate your lives and create your very own haven. 

Girls

The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world making it a great place to start when trying to disrupt the cycle of poverty. In an industry mostly made up of females, we believe empowering women is the best way to do this. Don't worry, we still love to support men too but by focusing on building women up, it helps to empower the next generation as their families often gain access to education, shelter and healthcare.

Lifestyle

To us Higgler feels more than a lifestyle brand, it’s a way of life. With a passion for travel, we aim to inspire responsible travel and meaningful connections with people around the world. We love to learn about the traditional methods used to create the beautiful items we sell as well as the culture, the people and the delicious food. We promote eco-friendly travel options, wellness practises and sustainable living. We celebrate our similarities and differences with the people we meet along the way and encourage unity, always.

Respect

We understand the importance of respect for the people we work with and pride ourselves on treating people fairly and sourcing our products ethically. Products are purchased at a fair-trade price that provides a living wage for the artisans. Most of our suppliers are registered Fairtrade which means the products have been produced according to Fairtrade standards.

We promote slow fashion and want our customers to fall in love with and invest in our high-quality handmade treasures. When every item has a story to tell you will want to keep it forever.

 

We're very passionate about helping to empower people and communities that's why as well as trading fairly, we donate 5% of every pound you spend with Higgler to community projects worldwide. Stay tuned to find out more about the projects we run as we carefully consider the best ways to make an actual difference to people’s lives.
