Artisans

Here at Earth Sunflower we value being open, honest and transparent with our customers! We want our customers to know where their eco - friendly, sustainable products are coming from as well as who makes those wonderful products.

We also value partnering with small companies and organizations to support disadvantaged artisans working to maintain a livelihood in a competitive global market. We pride ourselves on the partnerships that ensure their employment, craft, and healthcare. 

These artisans are responsible for our beautifully hand crafted Earth Sunflower organic cotton travel bags! We partner with a certified Fair Trade organization in Kolkata India that provides vocational training to physically disabled community members. The majority of the artisans are hearing and visually impaired. 

Meet the artisans that hand make our organic bamboo cutlery sets! Rommez Uddin (top right), master artisan Sorabh Ali (top left) and Shahjahan Ali (bottom right). These talented bamboo craftsmen create organic bamboo goods in the Northeastern state of Assam, India. Bamboo is the means for them to come out of poverty and support their families. Shahjahan Ali dreams one day of having his own company of bamboo craftsmen. 

 

 

 Our organic bamboo straws are hand created by a talented group of several artisans in Jharkhand, India. They too have been working with bamboo for over 10 years and rely on the trade to support themselves, their families, and their community.
