The Cultural Survival Bazaar gives shoppers a chance to make a difference with their purchase. You can learn about the items you buy and about the artisan who made them or what type of project and community it supports.

You can buy scarves and other jewelry supporting the livelihoods of Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal working to preserve and promote Tibetan art and culture or clothing from Ecuador supporting marginalized communities. Our Bazaars feature ostrich eggshell beaded bracelets from a San community in Botswana, which can feed the artisan’s entire family for a month, handbags made of recycled materials supporting artisans in India, as well as much more.
