Far and Wide Collective is an online marketplace like no other. Founded by world-traveller and entrepreneur Hedvig Alexander, Far and Wide connects some of the world’s most exceptional artisans with buyers across North America. We are a social enterprise dedicated to creating market access for talented artisans in post-conflict and emerging economies.

Since the beginning, Far and Wide Collective has sought out the very best handcrafted clothing, accessories, home décor and gift items, all sourced according to fair trade principles. What sets Far and Wide apart is that we not only offer unique and beautiful crafts, but we also provide feedback and market information to the communities that produce them. This ongoing communication ensures that each artisan receives vital market results so they can successfully grow their businesses to meet the demands of the modern shopper.

Far and Wide Collective never compromises. We seek out only the highest level of quality and design and, as such, we have developed a large network of international artisans. Our e-commerce experience connects worlds through an innovative business model, community support initiatives such as our Artisan Toolkit and, most importantly, crafts made by hand with heart and soul.
