Far & Wide Collective operated as online Canadian retailer and wholesaler of handmade home goods, women's accessories and gifts produced by artisans in Africa, Asia and Latin America from 2013 to 2018. Founded by Hedvig Alexander, who had worked in Afghanistan as director of Turquoise Mountain, the company's artisan collections included many artisans from Afghanistan.
The company also supported the development of the Artisan Toolkit in English, Dari and Pashto which is still available for artisans and artisan enterprises to develop their business skills and capacity.
Far & Wide Collective created an Artisan Directoryto connect its artisan partners with international markets. We offer baskets from Razafindrabe and Makaua that were part of the home decor collection of Far & Wide Collective.
