Customers love our handmade goods!

Joe C.

Local Customer, Cleveland, OH

Referring to the Revved Up Tri-fold Wallet he has been using for 2 years: "It still looks great! And I'm hard on my wallets!"

Sheila H.

Online Customer, Cleveland, OH

"I ordered 9 masks - they are beautiful, soft, ... substantial and professional quality. We couldn't be more pleased! These masks are beautiful and useful and they benefit Humanity. I'd encourage everyone to buy these masks."

Maria R.

Online Customer, Baltimore, MD

"This is the second of your wallets that my boyfriend has purchased.  Because of his job, he used to go through a couple of wallets a year, and his last Revy wallet lasted him two years and his credit cards look intact. So we are very excited that he now has a brand new one!"

Amy Kofmehl-Sobkowiak

Women of the Cloud Forest, Pittsburgh, PA

"We have been carrying Revy products since our store opened.  They are our "go-to" company for the hard to fill "men's gifts" section in our store.  Our favorite product by far is the inner tube belt with the adjustable length feature.  We had a customer buy one for himself and return during the holidays to pick one up for all of the men in his family. We are glad to be able to offer Revy products in our store and continue to support all of the work they do in El Salvador."

June 2009

Our founder is struck by inspiration

Ron Ober makes his first visit to El Salvador, hosted by the NGO CRISPAZ at their San Salvador headquarters. CRISPAZ artisans meet Ron and share their crafts. He returns home, stunned at the depth of need in the country.


August 2009

Founding Revy

Ron returns to El Salvador with Mary, and together they place the first orders with a handful of co-ops, including La Mora Jicambú.

Revy Fair Trade Products is founded.


Spring-Summer 2010

Making connections

Ron and Mary meet with more co-ops (including Taller Jaragua pictured above, and Las Tinecas) and creators Alma de Añil and Mario Alabi.

Mario designs the first rubber purse for Revy.


Fall-Winter 2010

Fair Trade Federation membership

As the product line and artisan co-op contacts multiply and begin to firm up, Ron applies for Fair Trade Federation membership. 


Sharing the goods

We begin to take Revy's offerings to trade shows, leading to sales success for Revy's artisans, notably Alabi Recycling's Revved Up accessories and Alma de Añil's indigo handbags.


Creative collaborations

Following customer requests, Mario Alabi (Alabi Recycling) introduces his immediately-popular wallets.

Alma de Añil creates her first scarves for us and develops new purse designs.
