Agent of Trade - Curated Artisan Design - is a platform that represents creative artisans from across the world, bringing their designs to you. Every purchase directly benefits a person, their family, and their community.

Fiona Stafford, Sydney-based Founder, first fell in love with handmade artisan design on a 2012 trip to Cape Town, South Africa Captivated by slow, traditional techniques, ethically sourced products and colourful design, the seed was sown for Agent of Trade.

With a plan to create a platform for artisan design, and a passion to make real social change with a minimal carbon footprint, Fiona set about sourcing other like-minded businesses that are driving demand for traditional craftsmanship in developing countries.

With fair trade principles and sustainable development goals at the very heart and soul of Agent of Trade, Fiona hopes to drive the demand for artisan design.  

Agent of Trade allows artisans to produce goods using traditional techniques whilst receiving fair wages & conditions. This leads to empowerment and self sufficiency which in turn fuels sustainable economies and benefits societies and humanity at large.
