We are committed to investing in ethical supply chains. It's not just about the goods we offer. It's about social good.

Our Values

Key components to our mission statement, core values, and daily practices are integrity, empathy, and compassion. Purpose and impact are an integral part of who we are.

We will prioritize partnering with and supporting fair trade nonprofit organizations that share our same purpose-driven values. We believe that together, we can positively impact the lives of the artisans and their families.



Materials matter. We only offer products crafted from mindfully sourced brands who share our commitment to support positive change. All of our products are responsibly handmade with all natural eco-positive fibers from local and renewable resources, or from upcycled/recycled materials.

Social Impact

Fair Trade

The impact of purchasing fair trade items means that every product you buy positively and directly benefits, supports, and empowers the artisans who create them. Nourishment, health, education, and dreams for a bright future. A choice for fair trade is a choice for a better, more equitable world. With every purchase, you are supporting ethical sourcing practices and sustainable livelihoods for the artisans.

You Shop, We Give

For every purchase made at Cultured West, we will donate $1.00 to support NEST, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) supporting the responsible growth and creative engagement of the artisan and maker economy to build a world of greater gender equity and economic inclusion. Through programs that support the wellbeing of artisans both in the United States and globally, Nest is bringing radical transparency and opportunity to the informal handworker economy.
