Veero is committed to fair trade business, supporting artists and strengthening communities around the world. Their primary goal is to provide dignified, living wage employment to women from low-income communities and giving them an opportunity to earn an income. By creating these opportunities, they can slowly revive markets of craft that have been on a slow decline and at risk of marginalization. Employing these artisans and paying a dignified wage is their investment to these artists, and the goal is to give them the opportunity to earn an income and re-invest in their family first.
When you buy a Veero item, you affect everyone who took part in creating that piece. Over the past few years, they have created two artisan cooperatives, one in Northern India and their most recent endeavor in Nicaragua, employing and empowering the artisans who work with them.
