Nest is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) supporting the responsible growth and creative engagement of the artisan & maker economy to build a world of greater gender equity and economic inclusion.

Through programs that support the wellbeing of artisans both in the United States and globally, Nest is bringing radical transparency and opportunity to the informal handworker economy.

The Nest Seal logo incorporates hands symbolizing humanity, cooperation, and handcraft, brought together with the image of a bird, which depicts Nest's work to give artisan businesses their wings to fly.


Established in 2006, the Craftmark initiative helps denote genuine Indian handicrafts, develop sector-wide minimum standards and norms for certifying and labeling handcrafted products, to increase consumer awareness of distinct handicraft traditions.
