At Katel Home we promote quality craftsmanship, beautiful design and ethical fair trade practices with transparency in materials used. We believe in the importance of preserving traditional artisan craft techniques, while also highlighting the social impact these artisans are making upon their communities.
Katel Home was started by out of the idea of promoting handcrafted global goods created by independent artisans. We believe in quality craftsmanship, beautiful design and ethical fair trade practices with transparency in origin and materials used. We also believe in the empowerment of promoting women artisans. The artisans we work with help improve the lives of women in a number of ways, including business training, literacy education programs, and even just providing fair living wage jobs to widows and women refugees who would otherwise find it hard to work and take care of their families.
Artisans from a cooperative group located in Guatemala, take discarded glass used from recycled wine and beer bottles and melt it down to create new recycled glassware pieces.

Fair trade is exchange based on dialogue, transparency and respect that seeks to create greater equality in the international trading system. Fair trade supports craftspeople in developing countries that are socially and economically marginalized.
Fair Trade empowers people to make choices for the good of themselves and their community, regardless of gender, status, position in society, or position on the globe. Rigorous standards give farmers, workers, and craftspeople a voice in the workplace and the community.
