Kasandy is a fair trade store opened in 2016 by Jackee Kasandy, an African Canadian, originally from Kenya. You can expect to find handmade products made by artisans in Kenya, East Africa, and Latin America, as well as local Vancouver based artisans, alongside a variety of diverse ethnicities and cultures from around the world. At Kasandy, we are aligning handmade talent with global consumer constructs. We work closely with artisan entrepreneurs to improve, introduce or advance their product design and quality to meet the current industry trends, build their businesses, and sustainably increase their income. Our mission through partnering with our customers, is to introduce to the global marketplace the breadth of work created by these diverse artisans, ultimately, enabling them to earn a fair wage to support their families, businesses and communities.
