Ukrainian craft marketplace launches global store

Ukrainian craft marketplace launches global store

22 September 2017

An ethical trade marketplace carrying craft items made by Ukrainian masters has launched a global online store called Three Snails.

The project was launched locally in Ukraine in 2015 and operated for two years there before expanding. It offers gifts, home decor, jewellery, accessories, clothes and art, all produced by artists, artisans and designers discovered across the country by the store’s team. It works with people from rural communities, who get full payments for their products, while the store generates revenue on commission from the customer.

Get your Christmas orders in early — standard delivery to Europe is $5, and the store promises customer support seven days a week.
