Ten Thousand Villages….Because every handcrafted object has a life of meaning behind it.
Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. We're a global maker‑to‑market movement. We're a way for you to shop with intention for ethically-sourced wares — and to share in the joy of connecting with makers in ten thousand villages.
Celebrating 25 years on King Street, we are Northern Virginia’s first fair trade retailer. Started by a group on like-minded folks who wished to support the mission of fair trade and sustainable crafts, they created a local 501(c) 3 non-profit. We are members of the Fair Trade Federation. That means you can trust that every handmade purchase you make from us directly impacts the life and community of its maker in a developing country.
When you enter our store, you will discover a world of difference. Browse our many handcrafted gifts and accessories made from sustainable materials around the globe, often showcasing the craft and culture of their communities. Sip organic and fair trade coffee while you travel the world through our store!
