We created GlobeIn to make a difference in the lives of local artisans by connecting them with the global economy.
That desire drives us to be a different kind of online marketplace. One with a focus on creating opportunities for all artisans. One that is not limited by technology but expanded by it. One that is motivated not by what is easy for us, but by what will be most meaningful for them. One that values not only our artisans' crafts, but also their passion, their history and their culture.
This would not be possible without our Artisan Helpers — a uniquely dedicated group of travelers who seek out talented artisans from even the most remote corners of the world. They not only photograph their wares — they take the time to capture the living stories behind their works. They navigate the technology so that there will be no barriers to connecting these local artisans to the world marketplace. Ultimately, they empower our artisans to expand their incomes and by doing so, support the stability of their communities.
At GlobeIn, our shoppers discover these wonderful one-of-a-kind wares and hear the stories of our artisans first hand. With each click, they become armchair travelers and share in another culture. With each purchase, they support not just an artisan, but their craft and their communities as well.
