About Us

Our Story

It all started on a humanitarian trip to Bali, Indonesia in 2008 when Suzanne was inspired to partner with local artisans to create modern home goods using their traditional crafts which in turn provides sustainable income. Village Thrive is a way to share the natural beauty of this place and its people with you. But it doesn't stop there.

Thoughtful consumption is our guiding light as we create and curate products. We are mindful not only of the beauty of the craft but also the functionality of our products and the sustainability of the materials. We use natural materials for our products such as organic cotton, rattan, bamboo, straw, wood, clay and leather. Our products are handcrafted in small batches and each tell a story of generations of craft and culture.

You can feel good about your purchase from Village Thrive. From start to finish we have been mindful of the process. With every product you purchase from us, you are helping support local artisans to thrive in their craft and sustain their families while also choosing to consume in an eco-friendly fashion.

Our goods are the product of decades of tradition handed down through generations. The outcome is craft and intentionality. All our goods are slow made by hand. What you get is a one-of-a-kind product made just for you with the story of someone's attention and care crafted into every detail. Keeping traditional techniques alive while reaching the modern home. Along with that we believe in the ethical treatment of all humans and follow Fair Trade practices. Therefore we have visited the production locations and met the artisans crafting our goods being sure that no one is being overworked or underpaid for their craft and that all working environments are safe and healthy.
