Sustainable Spotlight: Discovered

Discovered clutchUsing business as a force for good, Discovered is an online platform celebrating the unique aesthetic of handmade accessories from across the globe.

Founder Gisjbert Van Der Sleen had the idea to help skilled entrepreneurs who cannot afford it, to showcase their designs and achieve a fair profit from their sales.

By setting up a digital marketplace, Gisjbert has created a community where hand craft and fair trade professionals can come together and thrive. The concept not only helps artisans make a fair and decent living, but it gives the consumer a personal connection to the product, as they discover the story behind the label.
