Empowering artisans. Sustaining communities.
Thank you for visiting TIEV, Treasure in Earthen Vessels. We're excited that you're joining our journey! TIEV is taking on what some would say are daunting goals, but we know that with God, all things are possible!
"But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
that the excellence of the power may be of God, and not of us.
We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.
Always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus,
that the life of Jesus, also may be manifested in our body."
2 Corinthians 4:7-10
The day to day lives of our artisans are filled with extreme challenges, yet there remains within them an unconquered determination. Through TIEV, you can come alongside, as we press forward TOGETHER.
Who We Are
TIEV came to life conceptually on our first mission trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti after seeing people struggling to attain the necessities of life such as food, water, clothing, and shelter. We strive to create opportunities where they do not otherwise exist for artisans living in countries around the globe, some of which have been identified as the poorest in the world.
We will identify, market, and sell unique products created by artisans who lack the opportunities, finances, resources, and channels to showcase and benefit from their God given talents.
BEAUTY - Our goal is to share the beauty of our artisan creations on a worldwide platform to be enjoyed by all.
HOPE - Our platform will give hope to areas that often feel forgotten due to limited means and opportunities.
LIFE - We will foster entrepreneurial talent to create a lifeline of economic empowerment, both individually and community-wide.
What We Do
We will partner with artisans around the globe to bring you an extensive selection of home decor, clothing, accessories, kitchen and outdoor products. Our items will be a perfect blend of style, authentic culture, beauty, and affordability.
Our first country partnership will be Haiti followed by Bangladesh, with many more countries to come.
We will offer specific entrepreneurial, financial, and empowerment training to artisans and interest-free financial assistance to scale their business.
