About Us

Explore Inspiration has been online since 2005 and features inspired choices for home decor & gifts from all over the world. My goal is to discover unique, quality home decor and gift items including handcrafted pieces created by talented artisans in a variety of mediums - from traditional folk arts such as basketry and needlework to painting, sculpture, ceramics and more.

fair trade Many of the items you will see on the site are marked with this icon. These items were purchased from importers who have been certified by recognized Fair Trade organizations such as the Fair Trade Federation and the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO). This certification ensures that the artisans who create these items receive a fair wage for their work, are able to work in safe conditions and practice sustainable methods. I also buy directly from local artists here in the USA.
