How did Global Heart start?
Formerly known as ‘Baksheesh,’ we became Global Heart in January of 2014, when Sofie Wastell purchased the business. Sofie was an employee of Baksheesh for almost 9 years, working her way from part time sales associate to Manager in just four years. She knew that was her dream job! Through patience, time, and hard work she was able to buy the store from the long time owners who were ready to retire and gave her their blessing!
Why the name Global Heart?
We feel a connection in our hearts with all of our artisan partners around the world… Simple as that!
