BECAUSE EVERY HANDMADE ITEM HAS A STORY BEHIND IT
goAlong Travels is more than an e-store. We're a global movement that breaks the cycle of generational poverty and ignites social change. We're a way for you to shop with intention for ethically-sourced wares — and to share in the joy of empowering makers.
We do business differently, putting people first. That means you can trust that every handmade purchase you make directly impact the life and community of its maker in a developing country.
ENSURING ARTISANS EARN A FAIR, LIVING WAGE
A conversation is the cornerstone of every purchase we make from an artisan group. Together we agree on a price that provides vital income and we deliver advance payments to grow resilient enterprises that thrive.
INVESTING IN PARTNERSHIPS THAT EMPOWER COMMUNITIES
We choose to work with women, people with disabilities and others often excluded from the global economy. Our long-standing relationships show us when women gain financial independence, their daughters, families and communities flourish, breaking the cycle of poverty.
CELEBRATING CRAFT AND CULTURE
Maker skills have been passed down from generation to generation. They are part of the history of a place and people. We work together to preserve indigenous legacies while spurring innovation and designs that speak to customers who love craft and culture too.
