Full Circle – Involving Customers

Connecting the customers to the artisans is also an important goal of MarketPlace. A Ten Thousand Villages customer shown here displays a textile partly embroidered by the MarketPlace artisans and added on by the customer – it was a gift to the customer from the artisans on International Friendship day. In exchange, customers sent notes, cards or photographs to the artisans. Ten Thousand Villages is a non-profit Fair Trade organization.
