Meet The Brands: Crate & Barrel and Crate & Kids

Crate & Barrel was founded more than 55 years ago by a husband-and-wife duo. The couple, inspired by their European honeymoon, wanted to bring simple and beautiful housewares to the U.S. Eventually, they opened their first brick-and-mortar store. It’s where the name Crate & Barrel came from: Crates were used as display cases. The brand also quickly set itself apart as a pioneer in ‘experiential retail’ with stylized vignettes inside its stores.

Today, Crate & Barrel has become a household design retail name. And in 2001, the brand acquired the kids home decor company, Land of Nod, and rebranded it into Crate & Kids.

All across africa

Meet the Brand: All Across Africa

All Across Africa is a certified B-Corp focused on creating sustainable employment opportunities in sub-Saharan Africa. They employ artisans to make ethically crafted, fair trade goods—from woven baskets and boxes to beautiful wall hangings. The All Across Africa team helps scale the production of these high-end goods, connecting artisans with competitive markets worldwide.

All Across Africa was founded on the principles of dignity in work, creating grassroots movements, and accessibility. They live out these principles by seeking to:

  • Holistically empower and improve and the lives of those they partner with and employ
  • Reach far into rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa where jobs are scarce—developing local leaders to lead positive change in their communities
  • Make work approachable for all people through flexibility and job development in remote areas

Ultimately, their mission is to create jobs and markets to alleviate poverty across the African continent. As of 2020, All Across Africa employs 4,575 artisans across Ghana, Uganda, and Rwanda; 98% of these artisans are women. On average, each of these artisans supports more than five dependants—which means that, through employment with All Across Africa, 24,700 dependants have more reliable access to food, education, safe housing, clean water, and financial security.
