Our Fair Trade Mission
Plowsharing Crafts has provided meaningful income to skilled artisans around the world by marketing their products in the St. Louis area since 1985. We are a ministry of the St. Louis Mennonite Fellowship, one of two Mennonite churches located in the St. Louis area. Plowsharing Crafts is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, and a 501c3 not-for-profit organization. We are largely staffed by volunteers from the community, and we always welcome new friends to join our team.
Many of the products are made with sustainable and recycled materials.
Our food products are grown all over the world by small farmers using sustainable methods.
