OTHERS Gift Guide

What if you could give gifts this holiday season that give back to those in need? With OTHERS you can!

The main goal of OTHERS: Trade For Hope is creating safe, fairly compensating work for people who otherwise have limited opportunity. Production units are in many cases linked with The Salvation Army’s community development programs in Kenya and Bangladesh, where producers receive necessary counseling and support.

Behind every product from Others is a unique story of dignity, independence and hope.

Read on to see just some of the products OTHERS has to offer!

Here are a few more of our hand-loomed items. Aprons, potholders, dishcloths, and tea towels.

These kitchen items have changed lives. How? When a person or a family begins to earn a fair wage for what they produce, their quality of life improves as do their finances. Because education can be challenging to obtain in Kenya and Bangladesh where our artist-producers live, families depend on the sale of these items as they allow them to earn enough to put their children through school.

These hearts are one of the first crafts that artists learn to make with Others. So many have become leaders in their group after learning to embroider such precise stitches.

This best-selling item is at the heart of who Others are: Our mission is to foster independence and financial independence, educate the next generation, build confident women leaders, create ethically and sustainably made products and increased freedom for those exploited.

Doesn’t that just warm YOUR heart?
