Kismet’s grass roots enterprise began working directly with artisans in rural India nearly fourteen years ago, recently expanding to the states of West Bengal, Haryana, Gujarat, and Orissa. Long before Fair Trade became the popular “green” buzzword it is today, Kismet was already busy making a difference in the global community. They proudly support a thriving cottage industry of creative individuals who share Kismet’s pursuit of quality and sustainability…in products, in the environment, and in their lives. Kismet’s family of artisans takes great pride in the quality of their craft and are well compensated for their efforts. The result…high quality, one-of-a-kind products that are simple, beautiful & functional.
