About

The creative manufacturing and handmade sector is projected to reach $1 trillion USD by 2024. Around the world, much of this production takes place by artisans who work in informal settings like their homes or small workshops. As a result, these workers can be unrecognized by formal institutions, and the protection of their social and economic rights can be the exception rather than the norm. 

Through the Seal of Ethical Handcraft, Nest plays a critical role in bridging the gap between the brands and customers seeking Ethically Handcrafted product and the artisans producing that product. Our Seal, backed by our Ethical Handcraft program, ensures that artisans and handworkers have a safe and equitable work environment—even as they work outside the traditional four-walled factory.

WHAT THE INDUSTRY IS SAYING

The Seal

The Nest Seal can currently be found on over 400 products across 2,000+ retail stores including Target, West Elm, Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids. 

The Nest Seal incorporates hands symbolizing humanity, cooperation, and handicraft. Together with the image of a bird, the Seal depicts Nest’s work to give artisan businesses the wings they need to fly.

What the Artisans are Saying

Licensing the Nest Seal

Brands and retailers can license the Nest Seal of Ethical Handcraft in two ways. First, Nest can work with your team to understand your product needs and match you with a supplier that is eligible to carry the Nest Seal. Second, Nest can implement its Ethical Handcraft program within your artisan supply chains to support their ultimate certification.
