"Behind every product is a person." We have this quote framed at the shop and are honored to partner with brands elevating the worth and dignity of their artisans. One of our newest brand partners, @melangecollection , with artisans in Guatemala, Peru, and Armenia, shares "We have been working with the same artisan groups for many years and have developed long-term, committed partnerships that help promote sustainable income, environmental awareness and greater economic equality.  We pay fair prices in the local context, offer fair credit terms and prompt payment, we promote safe and healthy work places and we respect cultural diversity." Adorable and well made products, yes, but also so much more for the makers behind our products!

So maybe you're not acing the whole back to school/back to fall sports/back to the office thing, but one thing I know, you're not alone. Forgotten gym clothes, trashed medical release forms, work campaigns gone awry, cereal for dinner... I haven't talked to one person this past week who has it all together. One day I was telling our youngest he didn't have school the following day, only to wake him up the next morning with, "Mom screwed up... time for school." 😬 The juggle is real, and inevitably balls will fall. So maybe "great" is a stretch, but can we at least say, "We're doing OK"? No one is perfect - cut yourself (and others too) an extra bit of slack these days as we roll into a new routine, a new season. Get up, love well, rest up, repeat.

Team work makes the dream work & boy is it hard when it's time to say farewell to part of our stellar team. 😢 As Kayleigh, Chloe, and Roci head off to their college adventures, and Missy makes her big move down south to be close to her sweet fam, we truly wish them all the best. Goodbyes stink, but we know good things await them all, and we're so grateful for their time with us. Watch out world, here they come! ❤️

Back to school time is here... It might not look exactly like many of us hoped for (I'm looking at you, Delta 🙄), but we can still head out in style. Bookbags, planners, masks, natural hand sanitizer - we've got your back; quite literally. 😉

There comes a turning point towards the end of summer when the thought of fall doesn't seem so bad after all. The arrival of our latest @mzfairtrade bags just triggered that for me. The mix of rich colors, softly woven wool, and leather accents brings all the cozy fall feels. Our largest collection yet of clutches, wristlets, handbags, crossbodies, & totes has just hit our shelves and website.

Our Story

Clean Slate Goods is a marketplace for goods with a mission - a mission to alleviate poverty, empower women, and restore dignity.

Here you’ll find handbags, jewelry, journals, pillows, blankets, baskets, candles, soaps, kitchen wares, children’s toys, and more, all made with care and quality by artisans around the world, each one being given fair wages and dignified employment.

Clean Slate Goods began in 2014 as Clean Slate Designs. We started by making home decor from reclaimed wood and selling our products at local vendor shows. These roots gave me a greater appreciation for the work & heart that goes into creating products by hand, how important it is to have the right marketplace, and the true value of each piece. The more products I made and the more shows I was involved in, the more my heart grew for makers of handmade goods, and the more I desired to do good with Clean Slate Designs. Gradually, I began to learn about companies around the globe that were training and employing individuals in marginalized communities to create handmade goods while providing them with a marketplace for fair and sustainable employment. I then partnered with several of these companies to sell their artisan goods along with mine at vendor shows and through my website.

Now our journey has taken us one step further with our retail space where we exclusively sell for-good artisan wares. It is a privilege and an honor to increase our line of products and share with you, our customers, a wide range of quality, ethically produced handmade goods.

When you make a Clean Slate Goods purchase, you can be confident that your purchase is doing good, for you and for the maker behind each product.
