Exporting your products to customers around the world can help you to scale globally. Ray Sickles found that out when he bought his handmade rope sandals company. At first he didn't intend to focus on exporting. However, when customers from around the world started contacting him at Gurkee's in Morgantown, West Virginia, he decided to put his best foot forward and learn everything there is to know about exporting. He expanded his company's reach overseas and it really paid off.

They sure as hell don't start you out at $9.00 an hour to work ! And you have to make a shit load more of your quota to get your $ 12.00 an hour. No benefits & even the key chains are cheaply made. Was given a keychain and it fell apart 3 days later.

Information is incorrect.... Employees start at $9.50 per hour with periodic evaluation to increase base pay. Additionally employees are paid a bonus for each unit which is added to their weekly paycheck. There is no quota. We offer benefits such as 1 week paid vacation yearly and product discounts to all employees. Keychains have a free lifetime guarantee. Sincerely, Ray Sickles, Owner

Plastic rope looking natural sandals for fake environmentalists and fashion conscious consumer. Typical Americans making everything synthetic or fake helping the oil industry in another slap in the face to old world natural traditions THANKS MERICANS FOR A MORE PLASTIC WORLD

You are highlighting something with no choice unlike these fake natural looking sandals. I prefer real not americanized fake real, handmade using natural materials is the way to go for a better world, enough fake oil based rubbish already.

just remember your comment next time you ride in your car or bus even the tires on your bike how you help the oil company.
