Meet our Vendors - WorldFinds

Check out this weeks blog about our vendor, WorldFinds!

WorldFinds mission is to empower women through fair trade. Our jewelry and accessories create work for over 700 artisans in vulnerable communities in India. These thoughtful designs and sustainable practices bring change to the lives of the artisans, provide a bright future for their children, and strengthen their communities.

We’re a { mostly } women-powered brand that began in 2001. We design all of our items in-house, and love to work collaboratively - both here at our office in the states as well as with our amazing artisans halfway around the world.


There are over 700 incredible artisans that bring our jewelry and accessories designs to life! All of our styles are handmade by women artisans in India and Bali. Some are part of women's cooperatives or family groups, and others are members of the WFTO (World Fair Trade Organization). All are finding a path out of poverty through fair trade.


WorldFinds happened completely on accident, in the middle of a 14-month backpack trip around the world. It was 1999, and founder Kelly Weinberger and her husband David Burns had taken a sabbatical to travel. They'd gone through Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and finally Asia, where they spent time in India and Nepal. Kelly learned about fair trade from a fellow traveler, and at that moment knew that this was what she needed to do next. It was truly the perfect combination of all the things! She dreamed of creating a business that existed to do good, that was based on partnership, great design, collaboration, and respect for humans and the environment. A business that would address the root cause of poverty - a lack of work. The combination of dreaming and doing (and persistence!) has resulted in who we are today.
