ABOUT US

About Us

Beas y Tapia is a small family business dedicated to exporting handicrafts from Chile since January 2nd, 1987. Currently, our clientele spans across Germany, England, the USA, Denmark, Taiwan, and China, with the majority being members of Fair Trade Associations.

Our commitment lies in practicing the principles of Fair Trade, fostering fair dealings with both our artisans and clients. We directly engage with craftsmen, offering fair prices that honor their workmanship and expertise, while delivering certified quality products to our customers.

 

Since December 2013, Beas y Tapia has been an active member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). On July 21, 2017, we were honored to receive the designation of Guaranteed Fairtrade Organization from the WFTO. Additionally, we have been proud members of the Asociación Chilena por el Comercio Justo (Chilean Association for Fair Trade) since 2015.

Beas y Tapia has been a consistent participant in the international fairs 'Ambiente' and 'Tendence' in Frankfurt, Germany, for several years. In September 2019, we proudly took part in the WFTO 15th International Fair Trade Summit held in Lima, Peru, sponsored by ProChile.

Our artisans specialize in various crafts such as Clay, Ceramics, Fused Glass, Cactus, Wood, Copper, Bronze, and Horsehair. These workshops span the regions from La Serena to Villarrica, where each craftsman meticulously creates their products adhering to stringent international quality standards.

Our mission is to collaborate closely with family artisan workshops, promoting their unique creations and connecting them with buyers in different countries. By providing consistent work opportunities, we aim to enhance the well-being of their families and support quality education for their children.
