- We believe that the dignity of work can not only transform a women's economic trajectory and that of her children, but also her self-esteem.
- We value accountability of mission and execution by maintaining close relationships with all of our production partners to ensure ethical production and quality.
- We believe in the power of resilience and help spread stories of triumph with a larger audience of eyes, ears, and hearts.
We work with a vetted and approved diverse list of ethical suppliers from over 20 countries, ranging from small batch artisan co-operatives to large capacity factories. To date, we have sustained economic opportunity to over 2,000 vulnerable persons, most of whom are women, in our supply chain, with a secondary community impact touching tens of thousands.

"Now, since I have started earning on my own, I am more independent and can take care of my daughter and myself in a better way. She is now 14 years old. I can also save money for our better future and for my daughter's education."
Jane Mosbacher Morris
Founder and CEO
"I was inspired to start TO THE MARKET after identifying two underserved markets. On the demand side, there is enormous interest across the board, especially from millennials and Gen Z, for ethically-made products. People want to see the same transparency in the fashion world that now exists within the food and beverage space. On the supply side, there is incredible untapped production capacity around the world, particularly in the artisan industry. It's the second largest economy in the developing world, behind agriculture, but is largely disconnected from the supply chains of traditional retailers and corporations. I began to connect the dots during my time working at the U.S. Department of State on counterterrorism and then on women's empowerment. I ultimately conceptualized the business after a trip to India on human trafficking with the McCain Institute. We visited two bag and home goods producers employing vulnerable women, changing lives and generating beautiful products. My "aha" moment came when I realized the potential of organizations like these to serve the procurement needs of big businesses."
