Located just north of 45th street on Burnet Road by Pinthouse Pizza, Ten Thousand Villages of Austin is a volunteer-run, fair trade retailer of artisan-crafted home décor, jewelry, accessories and gifts from around the world. Featuring products from artisans in over 38 countries, you can feel good about your purchases with us because we are all about the people behind the product.
As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 60 years cultivating trading relationships in which artisans receive a fair price for their work and consumers have access to distinctive handcrafted items. We seek to establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed, and in which they lack other opportunities for income. A founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), Ten Thousand Villages sees fair trade as an alternative approach to conventional international trade.
