Woodfolk is committed to working and collaborating with small family-run businesses as well as Women focused organisations, creating opportunity, self-determination, support and hope in these communities through social entrepreneurship. By supporting with trade, not aid, the positive impact is sustainable.
They work very closely with a Newar family in Nepal to hand make their wood pieces. According to UNESCO, the craftsmanship of the Newars is one of the most highly-developed in the world.
Supporting traditional crafts means generations of learning is continuing, local artisans are earning a wage, and the uniquenesses of a regions craftsmanship can combat mass production, 'sameness' and throw-away consumerism that's taken over our world. And we are all about it!
And with Woodfolk being a local small business owned by Julia, a craftsman herself, who could we not want to support them.
