Ten Thousand Villages started 65 years ago with the Mennonite Central Committee to "provide sustainable economic opportunities for artisans in developing countries by creating a viable marketplace for their products in North America." They sell handmade baskets designed for storage and organization. They also offer decorative boxes for holding small items.

Gifts with a Cause has a passion "to provide sustainable income to artisans in developing countries and connect people around the world with stories of positive change through Fair Trade practices." They partner with World Vision. They sell handmade decorative soapstone boxes, perfect for organizing trinkets and jewelry. Each piece comes with the artisan's picture and story.
