Our Leadership

Our Mission

Favors Handicraft focuses exclusively on unique handmade items imported from countries like India. Favors Handicraft uses its wide reach through marketplaces such as Amazon, Walmart.com, Etsy, Ebay, Houzz, Chairish, Desiclick, and its own website to promote the handicraft industry from smaller cities and rural parts of countries like India. Favors Handicraft also prides itself on being extremely environmentally conscious, which means it focuses on items made from reclaimed wood (vs traditional wood that comes after cutting trees) and such other sustainable sources. Reclaimed wood, just like the word says, is reclaimed from other wooden items no longer in use such as old wooden ships. This prevents those old wooden items from ending up in a landfill and prevents cutting of new trees to get wood for furniture or other household items.
