Women’s Work Worldwide Is Never Done

GlobalSisterhoodThe2Sisters

Global Sistergoods is a marketplace for women artisans from around the world.

Global Sistergoods was founded in 2006 by two sisters, Beth Kapsch and Kristi Jo (KJ) Lewis (pictured above), who combined their professional backgrounds in living wage issues, international development, public policy and women’s equality and their personal love of beautiful, handmade goods to create this marketplace for women artisans from around the world.

We provide a living wage to economically disadvantaged women in fragile economies by supporting entrepreneurship, self-reliance and microenterprise development through fair trade. We partner with international non-government organizations who provide resources to women, governmental trade associations who support women’s economic empowerment, women’s cooperatives/collectives, and individual women artisans. We sustain traditional craftmaking techniques, provide high-quality products and educate consumers about women’s issues in the countries our partner artisans live in.

Global Sistergoods believes strongly in the value of “women’s work.”
