At Lemonceillo Home & Gift we are proud to partner with companies and entrepreneurs who have a giving component to their business model. We value supporting communities in need and fellow small business owners who are striving to offer environmentally responsible, ethical and sustainable products.
Quilling Cards became Fair Trade Verified with the Fair Trade Federation in 2015. The organization focuses on maintaining a code of values for treatment of employees. In 2014, they opened their first factory in Vietnam, employing over 100 quillers and providing a stable, safe work environment with healthcare and food benefits. They eventually opened a second factory so they have now given jobs to over 500 locals.
Societal aid for people with disabilities is not the same as it is in the US and Canada, and often leaves people out of work and hopeless. Quilling Cards have set up a program where these community members can come take their supplies and complete work in their home, on their own time. They are paid per piece they finish and are able to create beautiful work they otherwise would not have the chance to do.

XS Unified donates 1% of annual sales to the Facing the World Foundation to facilitate life-changing surgery for children with facial differences.
XS Unified is committed to reducing waste and using eco-friendly dyes. They design all products in-house with sustainability in mind. Their cap line is made using deadstock / overstock fabric. This is fabric already existing making it more energy efficient than producing new fabric and potentially keeping unwanted materials out of landfills.
