In these precarious times caused by the consequences of the Covid-19 spread, ALDA wants to take action with a new initiative to support small local artisans!
We are hence proud to announce that we are opening a call to select crafts, original artworks, handiworks with a story to tell, to advertise them through our social media channels and on a proper marketplace on ALDA’s website.
Aim of the call: in order to help small artisans and suppliers damaged by the crisis, we are launching a call to select products that we will then promote and trade at the European Level.
Deadline: 31st August 2020
What we are looking for: ALDA is looking for unique products that are not currently easily available on the European market and have a story to be told! We aim to connect the artisans to their customers and offer an insight on what lies behind this kind of work. The handiworks can be textiles, clothing, accessories, home decorations, cosmetics, pottery, jewellery and so on.
Criteria for selection: we will select the handicrafts based on the following criteria, i.e.
What we offer:
Terms and conditions: products will be available for sale on ALDA’s website, and ALDA will increase the original price of the product by 10-15% to sustain its mission and projects. In other words, we want to share the message “Support local artisans and their incredible story while strengthening democracy in Europe and beyond!”.
While payment of products will happen through ALDA’s website, producers will be in charge of shipping the products, and customers will be charged for the shipping costs. ALDA will transfer the payments to the seller once the amount of €250,00 is reached.
