Today we are highlighting one of our favorite ethical/fair trade brands, Sobremesa by Greenheart! We have been carrying Sobremesa products for over a year now and adore our partnership with them! They work with artisan groups in Peru, Guatemala, Tunisia, and Cameroon. Here is a little bit more about them.
A handmade lifestyle brand, Sobremesa by Greenheart supports fair trade, environmental sustainability, and conscious consumerism. The word ‘sobremesa’ means ‘over the table,’ and their name is inspired by the Spaniards’ tradition of lingering after a meal to savor the conversation and company of others.
They celebrate the traditional methods used to create their goods, and every item has a story, whether it’s about the revival of a glass-blowing factory in Guatemala or a weaving cooperative whose name is inspired by the rhythm of traditional foot looms. Each product is designed to empower the artisans and strengthen their community.
Sobremesa, a division of Greenheart International based in Chicago, and embodies their organization’s mission to connect people and planet. By sharing the story of our products and the artisans who make them, we invite each consumer to become aware of their impact on the global community.
