About Us

Hey there!  I'm so glad you're here!

I started Mango + Main in 2016 with the primary goal of connecting talented artisans across the globe with U.S. customers who were looking for authentic, handmade products.

It all started with a group of seamstress in Rwanda who had incredible sewing skills and wanted to expand their business.  I opened a little online store to sell their market tote bags, aprons, and skirts... and slowly over the years I began adding new artisan partners all over the world.  Now, 6 years later, we source apparel, accessories, home decor and gifts made by artisans in 25 different countries!  We also opened a storefront in historic Annapolis, Maryland and love being a part of our vibrant small town community!

Through the power of fair trade, artisan entrepreneurs in places like Haiti, Peru, India, Kenya and Guatemala are able to preserve cultural traditions and make a positive impact on their communities.  

Thank you for joining us on this journey to discover unique, purposeful, and authentic products from around the world!
