Faire introduces international makers to its wholesale marketplace
Faire, a company that connects retailers with the world’s makers, introduces international makers to its curated boutique wholesale marketplace. The introduction of international makers expands Faire’s marketplace and gives retailers a selection of products from around the world.
The expansion brings 370 new international makers to Faire from 39 countries, including Canada, the UK, Mexico, and as far as Honduras, Thailand, Uganda, and Belgium. Makers include Bohemia Design out of the UK, Canada-based Buck Naked Soap Company, Blancreme from France, Utilitario Mexicano from Mexico, Snurk from the Netherlands, and Isla Clay from Slovenia. During testing, more than 5,000 retailers on Faire placed an order with an international maker.
“We heard from many retailers that sourcing from international makers allows them to carry a mix of merchandise from their community, alongside bespoke products created by makers from around the world to surprise and delight their customers,” says Max Rhodes, co-founder of Faire. “We know that personalized service, curated experiences and serendipitous discovery continue to transform how we shop, and customers want diverse and unique options.”
Faire’s expansion provides international makers an opportunity to reach brick-and-mortar retailers in the United States. Most makers don’t send products until they are paid in full; Faire eliminates this by facilitating the payments and order logistics.
