Kartimarket was founded on two core principles: design and development. The two go hand in hand; design adds value to products, and if the higher price for this added value is passed on to the producers this should result in extra income for artisans and their communities. We work with fair trade producer organisations, this is the focus of our development efforts - providing artisans with decent remuneration for their efforts. This income contributes to a more sustainable (profitable) livelihood for them and their communities. We aim to contribute by helping providing feedback on quality and design - these elements lead to better products. The better the products they make, the more they can sell - a business-led approach to development.
