The HEART of De Baz

Ethical Employment.  Excellent Goods.

De Baz fights poverty by supporting ethical and sustainable jobs across the globe. Every product is lovingly handmade by our talented, tenacious artisan partners and provides them a stable, living wage. 

We are committed to elevated design and quality, but De Baz is more than just excellent goods. We are empowerment. We believe that charitable efforts, while noble, do not provide a long-term solution to poverty. Instead, economic development and job growth are the key to eliminating poverty for good. Our mission at De Baz is to support, fair-waged jobs for our global partner artisans.

Through their work with fair trade cooperatives, our artisans are able to feed their families, educate their children, and rise out of poverty. We’ve had artisans send their children to university, start their own businesses, buy land, and invest in their futures. Whether our artisans eventually leave to pursue new opportunities their economic and educational empowerment opened or whether they keep their maker jobs long-term, we focus on impacting their lives with every business decision we make. It amazes us that something as simple as jewelry or a purse can create such enormous change in our world, not just for our artisans, but for generations to come!

Every De Baz product directly impacts the artisan who made it. Here's how your purchase helps:


Fair Trade create jobs by bringing  artisans' handmade goods to a global market. This helps them access buyers not available in their local communities.





Having a consistent source of income changes everything. Our global artisans are able to meet their immediate needs.




As they continue to work with fair trade cooperatives, our artisans are able to put aside long-term savings and build a better future for themselves.



De Baz is all about long-term solutions. Rather than enacting temporary relief efforts, your purchase creates long-term jobs and steady incomes to break the cycle of poverty. Our partners across the globe are empowered to create their own futures.

We believe in bringing people together for collaborative solutions. When you buy a De Baz product, you are joining this community. You are an agent for change.
