ARTISAN PARTNERSHIPS INTERN

The Company
Lydali is a newly-launched online boutique that allows customers to connect with artisans around the world who design and create the items they purchase. Working with international craftsmen in 15 different countries, Lydali helps to provide reliable jobs and incomes while also bringing unique items made with traditional materials to the online market. We're a small team with a lot of heart, and we've been featured in 7x7, Refinery29, and DailyCandy.

The Role
We are looking for someone for the Artisan Partnerships internship with a strong eye for design to identify products being made by artisans around the world that would fit well into Lydali’s aesthetic. The ideal candidate has experience working with artisans or living in Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe, or South or Central America, and would be able to easily connect with artisans and representatives around the world. This intern would be responsible for developing leads and connecting with artisans and representatives directly to source great products for Lydali.

Responsibilities
- Continue relationships with our existing list of potential suppliers - designers, nonprofits, and others working with artisans around the world
- Seek out artisan groups making interesting products
- Build connections with people working around the world, and source partnership ideas and opportunities through those relationships

Additionally, we'd love to have you include 2-3 examples of artisan cooperatives that Lydali is not currently working with but that would be good potential partners, and explain your reasoning for choosing those cooperatives.
