Responsible Artisan Sourcing

Nest’s sourcing partnerships generate meaningful and ethical work for artisans while highlighting global craftsmanship in the latest fashion and home collections. Particularly in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Nest’s brand partnerships have played a critical role in allowing artisans and handworkers to continue to earn an income while working from home. In a sector where millions of handworkers depend on piece-rate—rather than salaried—wages, the importance of providing sustained employment through ongoing orders is crucial to economic resilience in the artisan communities that Nest serves.


Nest offers a transparent sourcing solution that connects brand partners directly to artisan and maker businesses in the Nest Guild. We believe that radical transparency together with collaborative partnership will create true opportunity for the informal handwork economy. In addition to providing brands with curated matching based on sourcing specifications, Nest can also train brand’s sourcing and product development staff on best practices and offer storytelling support.
