Why we started Carved Culture
I myself have a background in selling, in particular the sale of pre-owned goods. This allowed me to develop not only sales skills, but skills in understanding the importance of quality within a product. I began to understand that a high-quality product is not just well made, but should last over time.
Once my daughter was born, I began to realise the importance of sustainability when it comes to products. In the world today, now more than ever we are using resources at a rate that simply isn’t sustainable. That’s when I realised that with the products we were selling previously I was essentially recycling, taking something that one person no longer wanted and selling it to someone who did.
Soon after this realisation, I took a leap of faith starting my own business. I began to take all of my energy and put it towards my own business. I soon found that the demand for the products I was selling was larger than I had first anticipated and was soon earning more than what I was in my former full-time job, however this was not important to me. I find happiness in self, and environmental improvement, helping others by offering free educational articles on our blogs section, and improving the lives of our suppliers who work hard each day just to earn a living.
Every month I continue to take another step towards developing our business culture, creating strategies and plans to make life better for all. I began to sell new products, all of which were eco-friendly and didn’t harm the environment.
I placed significant importance on the company having a positive impact on the planet, especially for my daughter. I ensured that this was engrained in the mission of our company, ensuring that we could operate as ethically as possible. As a result, I spend significant periods of time sourcing ethically sustainable suppliers who had the same mission and ethics as us. I began to build and develop links with them, promoting their products through my store, eventually leading to the development of Carved Culture.
Today, our primary mission is to support the environment and in particular Fair Trade. We believe that artists and workers alike should be paid a fair day’s wage for a fair day's work. We help by contributing for a better well-being for all companies who work with us and aim to inspire positive change to our environments and help all of those in need of support.
