Items from inspirational gift and home decor manufacturer Glory Haus could be just the ticket if you’re looking for speaker gifts, room drops or office decor and want to support the greater good. “Our artists’ goal is to bring joy,” says Director of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships Ansley Williams. “A lot of products have good stories [behind them].” Take a look at the history and heart behind this enterprise.

What
Glory Haus is a designer and manufacturer of inspirational gifts and home decor with more than 2,000 products, including lines with 35 colleges, Elf on the Shelf, Annie Downs, Jen Hatmaker, Sadie and Korie Robertson, Third Day and more.

Where
Glory Haus merchandise is sold in more than 4,000 stores ranging from Nordstrom to LifeWay, as well as on websites such as Zulily and Wayfair. Products are also sold at events like Belong Tour and Sadie Robertson’s Live Original Tour.

When
Founder Molly Holm got a vision for Glory Haus in 2008, which coincided with the economic downturn. She started the collegiate line in 2011, and inventory continues to expand. “It was a difficult time in our country, but Glory Haus continued to grow,” says Williams.

Who
Glory Haus empowers women to support their families by employing them to manufacture all of the linen merchandise at Daughters of Hope in southern India. In addition to fair wages, Daughters of Hope provides free child care, lunches and savings plans to its employees.

Why
It’s all about inspiration. “Our hope is that our products would be more than just beautiful art that hangs on your wall,” says Holm. “[Our hope is] that it would speak truth and hope into people’s lives.”
