We are an Australian company established in 2019, trading online worldwide.
The idea to start this business came after years of stressing over what to buy for Christmas or birthday presents. It came after years of hiding away unwanted gifts and suspecting that some of our gifts to others might have the same fate. Looking for something different was not so easy in a world of plenty.
The inspiration came recently, after purchasing a few products from an Australian company which is supporting small Pacific communities by selling their products online.
In the world of the ever better, smarter, and cheaper electronic gadgets, many of us have forgotten the beauty of natural materials and simple hand made goods. We realized after some research that we can source authentic, handmade products, which could be used as gifts, and also make a smaller impact on the environment. This is how the idea to start Giftorado was born.
When sourcing our products, we aim to support local Australian businesses, indigenous communities, and small family businesses in developing countries.
Through following fair-trade practices, we help empower traditional craftspeople in Australia and several other countries to transform their lives.
We are committed to ethical and sustainable sourcing and are continuously striving to minimize our impact on the environment.
