Kindly Shop is an honest marketplace in support of artisans, creatives, independent brands, and small businesses. We harbor a curated selection of high quality products that derive from small batch productions across Latin America.
Each brand in Kindly Shop has been selected because of their story, progressive social or ecological impact, and the quality of the products they offer.
Our first curated inventory starts in Panama. This is also where Kindly Shop begins, in the fruitful heat of the tropics. We envision the expansion of this sojourn across Latin America. As we continue to experience different countries and cultures, we hope to share the meaningful stories guiding the process of artisans and their work.
In an evolving world and shifting economies, it is now more important than ever, to change the way we consume and what types of businesses we support.
