About us Ten Thousand Villages at CRAFTED at the Port of LA is part of the popular store of the same name in Redondo Beach, CA. We are a fair-trade retailer of home decor, personal accessories and gifts crafted by artisans from around the globe. As one of the world’s oldest and largest fair-trade organizations, Ten Thousand Villages has spent more than 70 years cultivating our trading relationships. Artisans receive a fair price for their work, and consumers enjoy access to thousands of distinctive, hand-crafted items. We establish long-term buying relationships in places where skilled artisans are under- or unemployed and create meaningful opportunities for income. We were founded in June 2014 by a group of friends wanting to make a difference. We are run by volunteers who believe in our mission and spread knowledge to our customers. We want our customers to learn and feel good about the translation of vital fair income for hundreds of otherwise disadvantaged artisans from developing countries throughout the world.
