Flourish was started with a simple purpose: to be a driving force of conscious consumption, making socially and environmentally sustainable products from around the world available to everyone. Our values are at the center of everything that we do, to ensure that everyone in the supply chain from creator to consumer is celebrated and informed. By bringing together craft stories, honest value and positive impact, everything here comes with a mark of goodness, and the hope that we can create a world where we can all flourish.
We want to ensure that our consumption habits don’t negatively impact the planet. We do this by working with producer groups, entrepreneurs and brands that have made a commitment to reduce their negative impacts on the planet by providing products that are sustainably made, from the raw materials to the packaging.
It is important to us that our makers receive recognition and fair compensation for their talents and hard work. Our network of producer groups provide their makers with fair, dependable wages and safe working conditions.
We believe that consumers and producers should know the true impact and cost behind a product. Our commitment is to transparency for everyone in the supply chain, from the creator to the consumer. We put forth not just what the makers are doing to improve, but also how the consumers can help. With every purchase made, a consumer also gets to know the share owing to the producer group and how it benefits them. It gives everyone a chance to understand the true value of a product and to be a part of the makers’ stories.
We are particularly focused on empowering women producer groups. This is to garner more recognition for the work they do and to enable sustainable livelihoods. Empowering artisans through a commitment to fair trade that allows them to thrive in and beyond their working environment. The aim is to work towards lessening the gap in employment globally between women and men, and expand opportunities for women.
