More Details
Tom’s Shoes became a huge brand by telling a story. With that in mind, Hickory Flats understands that stories sell, and by offering production from third world countries under fair wage / fair trade practices not only can we enhance the quality of life for those producers, but it allows the product purchasers to help in a philanthropic way and have a great story to add to their own brand! 

This sourcing service is regulated and managed by our in-house team located in Guatemala City in conjunction with our USA office. The Guatemalan office’s job is to maintain relationships with artisans, help build the artisan’s capabilities to manage larger-scale production runs, and to make sure that all compliance is met for fair wage / fair trade purchasing. Our team of expert sourcing and logistics managers make it possible to connect these world-class producers with YOU! 

Each project is operated differently based on a large variety of scenarios and circumstances, so there is no standard pricing. If your project is one that may fit well with our Central American operations, please shoot us an email describing the type of product you are working on, and we will let you know if it is a good fit for that region of production.

The most commonly successful sourcing operation from Central America include coffee, leather, textiles, wood, and some clay and metal items. Other more industrialized items such as plastics, metal, electronics, latex, etc are best sourced through our China operation.

In addition to sourcing, we are licensed exporters of a huge multitude of goods, so we can consolidate and ship your goods economically with full service as we act as exporter from central America, and importer into the USA.
