Eclectic Array’s Mission is embracing artisans to create unique handmade products, connecting artisans with consumers and transforming lives across Mexico.
We have incredibly talented artisans across various regions of Mexico, whom all make beautiful items and to see that mass production from overseas had taken over and was hurting the autonomy of our artisan community in Mexico, leaving many with even less work than they had before.
Our concept was inspired by Kiva, a non-profit organization that specializes in “micro-finance loans” given globally to individuals in poverty that are seeking small scale entrepreneurship opportunities. In layman’s terms, that is when you give small monetary amounts as a loan, maybe $100-$1,000 USD and that is given at 0% interest (or a very small interest rate) to empower someone in poverty to improve their lives through entrepreneurship. They can use that money to start a business or grow their business and they take pride in paying back the loan. It is the mentality of “teach a man to fish” - as opposed to a handout that someone may not even appreciate. Through Eclectic Array, we wanted to make a difference in a similar way, giving individuals the opportunity to support these individuals that were great artisans, through their purchase power, which in turn makes a difference in the lives of artisans and for their families to rise above their current economic situation.
We believe in fair trade, unique, beautifully crafted items that are affordable and make people happy. Together we can change the world. Lets SHOP GLOBAL.
If you yourself make items or know of someone that does, that is making a difference in the lives of others and you think we should know...connect with us at Connect@eclecticarray.com

Founder and “Creator of Change”
Faryn Clark moved from Dallas, TX to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with her husband and three boys. They chose to move to Mexico for their children to have a more diverse and cultural upbringing. While traveling, improving their spanish, and living a different paced life, she fell even further in love with the people, the culture and the art. She had always loved the beautiful artistry in Mexico and then started traveling across several regions of Mexico to explore, find products and meet artisans to open the first Eclectic Array store in May 2016.
