WorldCrafts Fair-Trade Gifts for Dads and Grads

This summer, celebrate graduates and fathers with WorldCrafts gifts handmade by artisans around the world.

Giving WorldCrafts gifts means you have the special opportunity to support parents around the world who work hard to provide basic necessities such as shelter, food, and education for their children and families.

Many WorldCrafts artisans are also working to obtain their high school equivalency diplomas as they earn an income making WorldCrafts products.

Your purchase makes an impact.

You can ship your gift directly to your recipient’s home by ordering online and listing his or her address as the shipping address. Download our free Father’s Day card and graduation card to use if you are giving your gifts in person.

Shop by June 13 for your order to arrive before Father’s Day.

Gift Guide

Moroccan Messenger Bag

The Moroccan Messenger Bag is a functional leather messenger bag that is large enough to fit most laptop computers, books, and notepads. The bag also features 2 external zippered pockets, snap closure, and 48-inch adjustable strap. Handmade by artisans employed at Leather Project in North Africa who are working to provide for their families.

 

Thai Backpack

 

The Thai Backpack features quilted black fabric on the exterior with elephant print fabric on the interior. Includes a zipped front pocket, 2 side water bottle holders, a hand strap that snaps on the top, a large interior pocket, and adjustable backpack straps. Handmade by artisans at Thai Country Trim, which offers a safe haven for battered women to find emotional and financial support.

The perfect accessory for keeping track of your wallet and keys! The Thai Elephant ID Case is made of quilted elephant-print fabric. Features a plastic window pocket, a zip closure, a handle, and a silver-toned latch clasp. Handmade by artisans at Thai Country Trim, which offers a safe haven for battered women to find emotional and financial support.

 

Cord Keeper—Navy

 

The Cord Keeper—Navy, adjustable for large and small cords, will be a great gift for those who have a lot of cords to organize! Handmade by women artisans of Graffiti 2 Works in the South Bronx of New York who build self-esteem and develop relationships with each other and with our Father.

 

Hope Lanyard

 

The Hope Lanyard can be used by graduates to hold their IDs and keys. Handmade by women artisans of Graffiti 2 Works in the South Bronx of New York who build self-esteem and develop relationships with each other and with our Father.

 

Indian Mosaic Frames

Give a framed photo in a unique Indian Mosaic Frame, which is made out of recycled, multicolored pieces of broken glass. These frames are made by Indian women employed at Rahab’s Rope who have been shattered like the broken glass, but by the tragedy of sex trafficking. As the women who hand-make each frame heal physically, spiritually, and emotionally, they too become new, beautiful creations.

 

Olive Wood Fish Dish

The Olive Wood Fish Dish is great for keeping change and keys! From each sale of an item, the Glad Tidings artisans in Jordan—who are hearing-impaired or otherwise disabled or disadvantaged—can afford to buy precious commodities such as food, clothing, shelter, and education.

 

African Pennant Banner

Graduates can use the colorful African Pennant Banner to liven up their new living spaces! Created by Rwandan artisan group More Than Sparrows, each banner supports these women as they find strength of spirit and new-found respect and dignity because they have worked together to leave their old lives behind.

 

Kantha Notebook

People can use the unique Kantha Notebook as a way to write prayers or keep up with daily tasks. Handmade by female artisans employed by Love Calcutta Arts in Kolkata, India, who are escaping the poisonous tentacles of the sex industry. Each notebook is filled with handmade paper and covered in three layers of different sari fabrics that have been kantha-stitched (running-stitched). Sari patterns and colors vary.

 

Spring Fling Set

The Spring Fling Set is a great gift set for graduates! Includes bag, frame, and journal. Handmade by artisans at Noah’s Ark in India. This innovative fair-trade network helps provide free education for more than 200 children.

Thank you for your support of WorldCrafts artisans around the world.
