The shortlist of handicrafts sold by gifts-missions.com represents
months of research and selection of items that will enhance
your home and be outstanding on your display shelf.
This e-commerce business relies on the support of the retailers and customers who care about
helping less priviledged people in South Asia. The financial targets are to operate on a
not for profit basis, with profits (if any) ploughed back in proportion to the selling oranisations.
These handicrafts are specially selected to mirror the Asian
artistic sense and each piece is unique because they are hand-crafted.
They are brought to a central sorting and packing station
(dispersed throughout Asia) and then packed into containers
to be sent through couriers direct to your doorstep through
our logistics base in San Francisco, USA.
