Global + Local Partners
Partnered with non-profit organizations and artisan groups that are committed to fair-trade business, we believe the skills of our artists should be fostered and the communities they live in should flourish. By bringing you their work, we give a greater purpose to the items you use every day.
After sitting on the board and seeing the great work Aid to Artisans was doing, Canvas Home founder, Andrew Corrie, decided to create the Canvas Home Small Grants Program. The Canvas Home Small Grants Program provides artisans with direct and immediate financial assistance that can lay the groundwork for sustainable incomes for artisans. These grants are designed to allow artisan groups to acquire materials, tools, equipment, training, and marketing services in order to expand employment and generate income.
