How we can work together

Craft Talk loves to work together and to collaborate. We are inspired by how things are made, and the people who make them, and just want everyone to be treated fairly. We use Human Centered Design to get to the root of the problem and rely on Fair Trade principles to carry the day.

Sometimes it’s hard to map, and iron out, your ethical supply chains. We can navigate this process and we can design for seamlessness. We want to help you achieve supply chain harmony and we’re very open to working together on new and existing projects.
